b. It changes the direction of the force applied to raise the piano.

A pulley allows you to change the direction of the force needed to lift an object. Instead of lifting an object straight up, you can use a pulley to lift it in a different direction that is easier for you to apply force. This makes it easier to lift heavy objects by reducing the amount of force needed to lift them. Additionally, pulleys can allow multiple people to work together to lift a heavy object, making the process even easier.
