But one size is 9" so how can build that? I can't understand that.

Is it for traditional brick or standard brick?

10 cm is answer, as we can provide stretcher bond.

Explain me if I am wrong.

20 cm is right. I agree.

For external wall we provide 23 cm wall and for internal wall 10 cm. Then minimum thickness should be 10 cm.

How 20 cm will be the answer?

1"=25mm here unit is given in Cm so 1"=2.5cm.

So 9*2.5=22cm but here close answer is 20cm so 20cm is the right answer.

For all type Building with RCC frame structure, for non load bearing wall, minimum required wall thickness should be 8 inch (200mm) thick for outer wall and to reduce the cost, we can reduce the thickness to 4 inch (100mm) for interior wall partition in RCC frame structure.

I think the Maximum thickness brick wall 23cm.

The given Answer is right.

Because we use 1:6 mortar for load-bearing walls and 1:4 for the partition walls so for partition walls 10 cm and for load-bearing or external wall 20cm or 23cm is the minimum wall thickness.
