    A and C and D are wrong because they are all disadvantages of powder.

    That leaves B to be the answer.

    B. Transportation costs are reduced. 

    We pay for shipments by the pound or volume of a package.  Water weighs a lot an is therefore expensive to ship.  Shipping the dry powder saves the costs of shipping water.

    Easier to package and transport powder. Easier to clean it up if it spills.
