Here is an easy trick to remember it.

Only StringBuilder has the letter 'i' in it . If you put the letter 'i' upside down, it becomes '!' - equivalent to 'not' symbol in programming languages.

Hence 'StringBuilder' can be related with the word 'not' which can help you remember -> non-synchronized.
