Right choice is (c) Specially faced finish

To explain: Common finished surface is obtained by mixing appropriate aggregates. Glazed finish is used to give a shiny appearance. Colored finish is obtained by adding various colored pigments to the concrete mix to impart different colors whereas in the specially faced finish, finishing material such as marble, is used on the facing side of the block.
