It depends on what they want to do with the website.
They are all similar in a way.

I'll go everyone one better and say PHP is the "best open source utility that can be leveraged to develop website"

They just need sort of static website were they publish information related to their company. No interaction with any client through this website except contact us form. Also is there a learning curve to develop this site either in wordpress or drupal?

There's a learning curve to learning anything the first time.

WordPress is considered easier to get moving than Drupal but it all depends on the users.

If you really only need a static/minimal site, also look into managed solutions like Squarespace or Wix which are marketed to non-technical users.  One assumes it will be more idiot-proofed.

Then Jason wins the prize - just use PHP to create a couple of pages.

For a really simple site, you could use Google Sites. I built this one very quickly with Google Sites:
