B is the correct answer.

YES TO AIRING OUT:  If a CFL breaks at home, one of the best things you can do is air out the room for 5-10 minutes by opening a window or door to the outdoor environment. Learn the most important steps to take.

NO TO VACUUMING:  Vacuuming is not recommended unless broken glass remains after all other cleanup steps have been taken.  Vacuuming could spread mercury-containing powder or mercury vapor.
