Correct option is
C

Construction of large structures like arches and domes.

Limestone cement was increasingly used in construction. This was very high-quality cement, which, when mixed with stone chips hardened into concrete. This made the construction of large structures easier and faster. Arches, domes and limestone mortar were used extensively in buildings after 1190 AD.
