I think the answer should be "extreme fibre of web section" which is not enlisted here. Because bending stress is maximum at the extreme top fibre of web as well as extreme bottom fibre.

It's bottom fibre. Since the Neutral Axis is not in the middle but is slightly near the flange portion.

Hence the distance of neutral axis from the bottom of the section is more and hence it is max.
