Carbon monoxide is more effective reducing agent than carbon below 983 K but above this temperature the reverse is true. If true enter 1 else 0.

1. 1
Solution: The three reactions are as :
.....(i)
.....(ii)
.....(iii)
Below 983 K reaction is more favored due to more negative G value thus CO is better reducing agent than carbon.
Above 983 K, reaction  has more negative than oxidation of CO to so carbon will be better reducing agent.
