Right answer is (b) Faster than other filtration equipment

The best I can explain: Vacuum filtration is used to collect a desired solid, normally in recrystallization for the collection of crystals. These are faster than gravity filtration, because the solvent and air is forced through the filter paper by the using reduced pressure.
