    I think a) doesn't qualify in this question because it doesn't relieve the hydrostatic pressure, while the others would help relieve, reduce, or revert the pressure away from the foundation. Hope this helps!

    ^^this is correct above.  Dampproofing is sort of like a "minimal waterproofing" approach.  You'd use that when there's maybe a small amount of water penetration issue but not something as grand as hydrostatic pressure.  In that instance, you'd do waterproofing - more intense and stronger.

    I came across this test question and was puzzled too as into why damp proofing wasn't a correct choice thanks!
