Correct option is B)

There are three articles namely 'a', 'an' and 'the'.  'a', 'an' are stated as indefinite articles whereas 'the' is a definite article.

Option A - 'A' is used for a singular subject that starts with a consonant sound. 'Interior' starts with a vowel sound and hence we can't use 'a' here. Thus option A is incorrect.
Option C - 'The' is used with a singular as well as plural subject, only if the subject is definite. As he is one of the interior designers, the subject is indefinite. Thus option C is incorrect.
Option D - We usually use no article in case of uncountable nouns. Here, the noun is countable and hence we need an article. Thus option D is incorrect.
Option B - 'An' is used with a singular subject that starts with a vowel sound. As 'interior' starts with a vowel sound, we can use 'an' here. Thus option B is the correct answer.
'He is an architect and an interior designer.'
