Solution

The correct options are
B He introduced carved wooden printing blocks.
C He replaced modular typesets.
Gutenberg's experience as a polisher and goldsmith where he had to make lead moulds to make trinkets came handy when Gutenberg set out to make intricate type sets for printing purpose. He replaced the carved wooden printing blocks with moveable or modular typesets. He used a modified winepress to press the inked typeset against paper.
