I think d should be the correct answer.

Answer should be B.

'the air relief valves ares used to admit air to the pipe line in order to prevent the formation of vacuum in case of rapid flow negative pressure. This vacuum or negative pressure (known as water hammer) may hurt the pipe line at some lower point.
