Correct Answer - Option 2 : 3 and 4

COMPARISON OF BRICKWORK AND STONEWORK

The brickwork is superior to the stonework in the following respects:

(1) At places where stones are not easily available but where there is plenty of clay, the brickwork becomes cheaper than stonework.

(2) The cost of construction works out to be less in case of brickwork than stonework as less skilled labour is required in the construction of brickwork.

(3) No complicated lifting devices are necessary to carry bricks as they can be easily moved by manual labour.

(4) The bricks resist fire better than stones and hence, in case of a fire, they do not easily disintegrate.

(5) The bricks of good quality resist the various atmospheric effects in a better way than the stones.

(6) In case of brickwork the mortar joints are thin and hence the structure becomes more durable.

(7) It is easy to construct connections and openings in case of brickwork than stonework.

The brickwork is inferior to the stonework in the following respects:

(1) The brickwork is less watertight than stonework. The bricks absorb moisture from the atmosphere and dampness can enter the building.

(2) The brickwork does not create a solid appearance in relation to the stonework and hence, for public buildings and monumental structures, the stonework is found to be more useful than brickwork.

(3) The stonework is stronger than the brickwork.

(4) The architectural effects of better quality can be developed by the stonework.

(5) The stonework is cheaper at places where stones are easily available.

So, here statement 3 & 4 are correct.
