    Correct Answer
    B. SMOKED GLASS
    Explanation
    Smoked glass is a type of opaque glass that is used to construct doors with glass panels. It allows natural light to enter the space while maintaining privacy and reducing glare. The smoked effect is achieved by adding color or tint to the glass during the manufacturing process. This makes it an ideal choice for areas where privacy is desired, such as bathrooms or conference rooms. Wired glass, laminated glass, and tempered glass do not provide the same level of opacity as smoked glass, making them less suitable for this purpose.
