Right option is (b) False

The best explanation: Composite stone masonry is a combination of ashlar masonry and rubble masonry. Rubble masonry is composed of irregular shaped stones, while ashlar masonry consists of regular shaped stones and gives a smooth and pleasant appearance. Hence, rubble masonry is used in the backing of the wall while ashlar masonry is used in the facing.
