Correct option is
C

Use lift

There are a few reasons why it isn't safe to use an elevator during a fire. The first is that fire can short-circuit the elevator call button on the fire floor and therefore cause the elevator to stop at that floor. Also, an elevator shaft provides a natural chimney. As such it can quickly fill with smoke. You don't want to be trapped in a small metal box in a smoke chocked elevator shaft. If power is lost or is cut while you are in the elevator then you are stuck there.  Last but not least if the fire is above the tenth floor the fire department will need the elevator to shuttle personnel and equipment from ground level up to an advance command post, probably two floors below the fire. 
So, the correct answer is C.
