Correct choice is (b) Cross draught gasifier

The best I can explain: A disadvantage of cross draught gasifiers is their minimal tar converting capacity and the consequent needs for the high quality charcoal. It is because of the uncertainty of charcoal quality that a number of charcoal gasifiers employ down draught principle, in order to maintain at least a minimal tar cracking capability.
