The question was posed to me in a national level competition.

My query is from Brickwork, Woodwork and Stone Masonry topic in chapter Rules and Methods of Measurement of Civil Engineering Drawing

The correct answer is D. stonemasonry

To elaborate: It is one of the oldest trades in human history. These materials have been used to construct many of the long-lasting, ancient monuments, artifacts, cathedrals, and cities in a wide variety of cultures. Famous works of stonemasonry include the Taj Mahal, Cusco’s Incan Wall, Easter Island’s statues, the Egyptian Pyramids, Angkor Wat, Borobudur, Tihuanaco, Tenochtitlan, Persepolis, the Parthenon, Stonehenge, and Chartres Cathedral.
