Did you mean "What is the best type of drill bit"?

any drill will get thru plaster - even a wood bit,,, drilling into brick isn't recommended compared to drilling into the mortar separating the bricks,,, usually 1 can drill mortar using a carbide-tipped bit w/o having to use a hammer drill,,, depending on the weight of what's hung from the anchor, you could use a tapcon or, if heavier, a lead shielded lag bolt,,, shear strength is a factor to be considered but pullout strength is normally less of a consideration

good luck !
