The Answer: It is not because of vacuum, but the reason for this is that suction did not create vacuum and sucking moved air inside the flask through forced motion and successive movements created heat; the heat expanded air and when air is expanded in the flask, it requires more space, hence it is necessary that some of it must go out and whatever can find space will stay in the flask and upon contact with cold water, this air will compress and contract, requiring less space and because vacuum is not possible, water rises up in the flask to the extent of contraction of the air.
