**Hint:**In this particular question use the concept that volume of one brick (i.e. space covered by one brick) is given as, $\left( {lbh} \right)$, where symbols have their usual meaning, same concept to calculate the volume of the wall, so the number of bricks required is the ratio of volume of wall to the volume of 1 brick so use these concepts to reach the solution of the question.

**Complete step by step answer:**

Given data

Dimension of the brick is $22.5{\text{ cm }} \times {\text{ 11}}{\text{.25 cm }} \times {\text{ 8}}{\text{.75 cm}}$

So, length (l) of brick is 22.5 cm

Breath (b) of brick is 11.25 cm

Height (h) of brick is 8.75 cm

Now we know that the space covered by the one brick i.e. volume of one brick = $\left( {lbh} \right)$

So, volume (V) of one brick = \[\left( {22.5 \times 11.25 \times 8.75} \right){\text{ c}}{{\text{m}}^3}\]

Dimension of the wall is $270{\text{ cm }} \times {\text{ 300 cm }} \times {\text{ 350 cm}}$

So, length (l) of brick is 270 cm

Breath (b) of brick is 300 cm

Height (h) of brick is 350 cm

Now we know that the space covered by the wall i.e. volume of the wall = $\left( {lbh} \right)$

So, volume (V’) of the wall = \[\left( {270 \times 300 \times 350} \right){\text{ c}}{{\text{m}}^3}\]

Now it is given that $\dfrac{1}{8}$ space is covered by the mortar so the remaining volume = volume of the wall - $\dfrac{1}{8}$ times the volume of the wall.

So the volume of the wall in which the bricks are applied,

\[ \Rightarrow \left( {270 \times 300 \times 350} \right){\text{ c}}{{\text{m}}^3}\] - \[\dfrac{1}{8}\left( {270 \times 300 \times 350} \right){\text{ c}}{{\text{m}}^3}\]

$ \Rightarrow \dfrac{7}{8}\left( {270 \times 300 \times 350} \right){\text{ c}}{{\text{m}}^3}$

Therefore the total number bricks (B) required $ = \dfrac{{{\text{volume of the wall in which the bricks are applied}}}}{{{\text{Volume of 1 brick}}}}$

$ \Rightarrow B = \dfrac{{\dfrac{7}{8}\left( {270 \times 300 \times 350} \right)}}{{22.5 \times 11.25 \times 8.75}}$

Now simplify we have,

$ \Rightarrow B = 11200$

So, the number of bricks that can be used to construct the wall are 11200.

**So, the correct answer is “Option B”.**

**Note:**Whenever we face such types of questions the key concept we have to remember is that if $\dfrac{1}{8}$ space is covered by the mortar so the remaining volume in which bricks are applied is the difference of the volume of the wall and the $\dfrac{1}{8}$ times the volume of the wall, and always recall that if length, breadth and height are given then the volume is the multiplication of these values.
