With mortar - 20*10*10 cm.

Without mortar - 19*9*9 cm.

Modular brick size is 20*10*10.

Because mould size is brick 20*10*10 and after burning the brick size shrink and becoming 19*9*9.

Thanks for explaining.

Actual Size of Modular brick = 19cm * 9cm * 9cm.

Nominal Size of Modular brick = 20cm * 10cm * 10cm.

There are two sizes of brick used in India i.e. Standard/Actual Brick and Nominal Brick size.

The Standard/Actual Brick size is 19cm x 9cm x 9cm.

And with mortar thickness, it's dimensions become 20cm x 10cm x 10cm which is also known as the nominal size of the modular brick.

Here the question asked is "ACTUAL SIZE" (means without mortar).

Therefore the correct answer would be.

(B) 19cm x 9cm x 9cm.
