Correct option is A)
Monuments provide an insight into the technologies used for construction. A stylistic development in the construction of 12th-century architecture was the use of Arches. The weight of the superstructure above the doors and windows was carried by arches. The Keystone at the centre of the arch transferred the weight of the superstructure to the base of the arch. This architectural form is called arcuate. A horizontal beam across two vertical columns is called "trabeate" or "corbelled".This design was used in the construction of temples, mosques, tombs and in buildings attached to large stepped-wells between 8-13 century.
