Solution

The correct option is B exothermic reaction
When water is mixed with cement to form a paste, reaction starts. In its pure form, the finely ground cement is extremely sensitive to water.  The action of changing from a fluid state to a solid state is calledsetting.That is heat is liberated as the water reacts with the cement during the setting so its a exothermic process.
