This is a strange question given these options and wanting to find what's not a type of matter:
a. rock b. light c. air d. steam
But taking them in turn (was this a homework question?)
Rock is not a type of matter, but it is composed of matter.
Light is not a type of matter, but is made of photons, which are a particle.
Air is not a type of matter, but is a mixture predominantly of the gases nitrogen and oxygen.
Steam is not a type of matter, but is water vapour.
So you have a solid, photons, and two gases there. All of which are composed of matter. I think the answer they are probably looking for is light but the teacher has worded the question very badly as none of these are a type of matter, they are all composed of matter.
