How sapply simplifies the result in R



I have created a vector in which I am trying to calculate mean of data in list so I tried both sapply and lapply and I want to know that I am getting the same result but my result are representing in different ways I want to how sapply formalized the data
for example

                  b         c 
 5.500000 19.704309  5.021585 
[1] 5.5

[1] 19.70431

[1] 5.021585


from the manual

lapply returns a list of the same length as X, each element of which is the result of applying FUN to the corresponding element of X.

sapply is a user-friendly version and wrapper of lapply by default returning a vector,
