    B). The arduous task involves shoving, lifting, and hurling bricks.

    Explanation:

    The context clues are described as the hint or clues provided by the author with an aim to explain or clarify the meaning of the unfamiliar or unusual word that assists the readers to understand the meaning contextually and comprehensively. These clues are often found in the remaining part of the sentence after the unusual word or around the words surrounding it.

    In the given question, option B exemplifies the 'example-type' context clues as it includes examples/instances like 'shoving, hurling bricks, lifting' that elaborates and illustrates the unfamiliar word 'arduous task' to the readers. These examples would assist the readers to understand the context of 'arduous tasks' which the author is referring to. Thus, option B is the correct answer.
