I think mason and stone will also be the answer because it will also use stones while building.

Ofcourse, Mason : stone is the answer. Since Contractor can be of any type, not just a building contractor whereas a mason always works with stones and bricks. So it is more accurate.

Potter: Paint will also be the answer.

Cobbler makes and repairs shoes but a mason does not makes stones. He just uses them in making Houses etc. So mason:stone is not the answer. Also potter makes potes not paints. So that too is incorrect. So the answer is contractor: building.
