  1.  B [Stone quarries and stone crushing factories]
    Notes:
    Chronic exposure to silica increases workers risk of tuberculosis infection and aggravates pre-existing pulmonary tuberculosis. Therefore the workers working in the places like Stone quarries and stone crushing factories are mainly prone to silicosis and silico-tuberculosis diseases.
