See answer and applicable Code reference

The correct answer is: c) 100 lbs

Article 314 covers the installation and use of all boxes and conduit bodies used as outlet, device, junction, or pull boxes — depending on their use — and handhole enclosures. As outlined in the first two sentences of Sec. 314.30(D), "Handhole enclosure covers shall have an identifying mark or logo that prominently identifies the function of the enclosure, such as "electric." Handhole enclosure covers shall require the use of tools to open, or they shall weigh over 100 lbs."
