The correct answer is (a) First class bricks with high compressive strength

Easiest explanation: Reinforced brickwork is the one in which the resultant composite masonry is capable of bearing any kind of tensile or shear stresses in addition to the compressive stresses. Therefore, it uses first class bricks with high compressive strength in order to impart great strength to the resulting masonry.
