Meq of $CaCO_3$=Meq of HCL=Meq of $CaCl_2$ formed=$525\times \large\frac{1}{10}$$=52.5$
$CaCl_2$ converted to $CaSO_4$ and then to plaster of paris($CaSO_4.\large\frac{1}{2}$$H_2O)$
$\therefore$ Meq of $CaCl_2$ formed=Meq of $CaSO_4$ obtained by $CaCl_2$
$\therefore$ Meq of $CaSO_4.\large\frac{1}{2}$$H_2O$ =Meq of $CaSO_4$ obtained by $CaCl_2$
$\large\frac{w}{\Large\frac{145}{2}}$$\times 1000=52.5$
Weight of $CaSO_4\large\frac{1}{2}$$H_2O=3.81g$
Hence (c) is the correct answer.
