In a mortar, the binding material is
cement
sand
surkhi
cinder.
Answer: Option
Explanation:
A mortar is a mixture of binding material, water, and fine aggregate (such as sand or surkhi). The binding material is typically cement, which is a powder made of a mixture of calcined limestone and clay. When mixed with water, cement forms a paste that hardens over time to bind the aggregate together and create a strong and durable building material. Sand and surkhi are both types of fine aggregate that are often used in mortars, and cinder is a type of coarse aggregate that is not typically used in mortars.

By human test, cement is cool & soft felling.

When Cement & water mixing then water density less than cement. That's my point.
