 Komal said: (Mar 19, 2017) Where is right angle in king closer?

 Gamit said: (Sep 29, 2017) A brick cut or molded to an oblique angle.

 Sane said: (Mar 12, 2018) Please explain it.

 Anand said: (Jul 20, 2018) What is mean by squint brick?

 Anam Siddique said: (Aug 18, 2018) I think the right answer is king closer.

 Tdentaa said: (Sep 7, 2018) If it's a right angle than it surely king closer but it's not. It's just an angle so squint is right.

 Zohaib Gilani said: (Apr 22, 2019) King closer is a triangular cut not passing through center of width or length. Squint Brick is any cut (may or may not be triangular) and doesn't form a right angle.

 Naveen said: (Jun 18, 2019) There is no 90° angle in king closer and there is no also 90° angle in squint closer so the most probable answer should be Both B and D.

 Anirban Roy said: (Aug 5, 2020) No. A squirt closer has a 90° angle. However, a king closer has 45°. So the correct answer should be king closer.
