Answer Key : (c) -

(c)

A characteristic of mass flow is that the substances, whether in a solution or in a suspension, are swept along at the same pair, as in flowing river. Bulk flow can be achieved either through a positive hydrostative pressure gradient ( a garden hose) or a negative hydrostatic pressure gradient  suction through a straw)
