Correct option is (a) Washingand de-liquoring

The explanation is: Cake filtration is combined with washing and de-liquoring of the filter cake. The purpose of washing is to remove the mother liquor left behind in the cake after filtration when this liquid is regarded as contaminant or recovered as a valuable substance.
