Right option is (b) Lead Patches on the glass

Easiest explanation: When a person is performing an X-Ray, they are normally in a control room which has a thick glass separating them from the main X – Ray room. This glass is double layered and has fine lead patches on it which deflect the incoming radiation and protects the person.
