Correct option is (a) piling up of chairs one above the other

Best explanation: Stack follows Last In First Out (LIFO) policy. Piling up of chairs one above the other is based on LIFO, people standing in a line is a queue and if the service is based on priority, then it can be associated with a priority queue. Tatkal Ticket Booking Follows First in First Out Policy. People who click the book now first will enter the booking page first.
