Correct answer is (b) Stop logs and needles

Easiest explanation: A Stop log consists of wooden beams and planks placed on to one another and leakage between them is a big problem. Needles are wooden logs kept side by side and it is very difficult to handle these logs at the time of flow. Hence they are not used on any major works.
