C. Decrease in temperature

D. Decrease in humidity

This question was posed to me by my college director while I was bunking the class.

The query is from Building Maintenance in division Building Construction of Basic Civil Engineering

Correct answer is D. Decrease in humidity

Explanation: Creep is small deformation that is formed due to loading on concrete. It is a slow, time dependent process. An increase in temperature and decrease in humidity can cause this.
