Correct answer is:
  • (B)  Metal splatter
Explanation:
Welding shields are made of fiber glass or vulcanized fiber, and come fitted with a filtered lens. Welding shields protect eyes against intensely radiant or infrared light that can cause burns. They also safeguard the eyes and face from metal splatter, flying sparks, and slag chips produced during activities like brazing, welding, soldering, and cutting.
