Is it only weight of water to that of cement?

How it could be both? Explain clearly.

The correct answer is only B.

I think the answer is B.

Weight = unit wt * vol.
so A and B correct.

Ajay said: (Nov 7, 2017)  
Weight = Unit Weight x Vol.
Water Unit Weight = 1000 Kg/m3.
But Cement Unit Weight = 1440 Kg/m3.
So, 1000 Kg Water = 1 m3 Water.
But, 1440 Kg Cement = 1m3 Cement.

So, I think Option B is Correct. Weight of Water to Weight of Cement.

Only B answer is correct.

In small work, we measure in volume.

And in mass work, we measure in weight to eliminate the bulking of sand.

Therefore E is correct.

By weight only. So, the correct Answer is B.

Actually 1m3 of the volume contain 1000 kg of water or 1000 liters of water. So both weight and volume will be correct.
