The Answer is wrong. As Per Govt of India Manual, a number of books and International Source Book issued by United Nation of Environmental Programme, filtration also occurs in Trickling filter.

So the correct answer is D (Both).

D is the correct answer. I too agree.

I also agree it should be D as:

The process of filtration can be explained by certain theories as:

I) Mechanical straining÷ big suspended or dissolved particles get arrested in voids.

II) Flocculation and Sedimentation÷ voids act like tiny sedimentation tanks arrest the colloidal matter which forms a gel and arrest finer particles.

III) Biological metabolism ÷ microorganisms in the voids digest the bacteria as food
IV) Electrolytic changes ÷ filtration by the method of ion exchange.
So, both come true.

B is correct.

According to Spellman, The trickling filter does not provide any actual filtration. The filter media provides a large amount of surface area that the microorganisms can cling to and grow in a slime that forms on the media as they feed on the organic material in the wastewater.
