the answer is

a) chemical to kinetic

this is because when the petrol burns in the engine, it produces chemical energy. this in turn converts to kinetic energy, which is the movement or the lift upwards(of the object)

a) Petrol`s chemical energy gets converted into Girder`s kinetic energy

  1. Chemical into Potential
Chemical gets converted into Kinetic and Kinetic is used up in lifting the girder thus increasing its Potential energy. So, on an overall basis Chemical gets converted into Potential.
