General Principles and Processes of Isolation of Elements
Carbon monoxide is naturally produced by oxidation of X , a gas present in swamp area while it can be produced by Y of fuels containing carbon.
- X - , Y = complete combustion
- X - , Y = incomplete combustion
- X = C, Y = oxidation
- X = , Y = complete combustion
Correct Answer: Option(b)
Solution: Carbon monoxide is basically formed when an object is burned. Methane, which is a natural gas produces CO after oxidation. Methane, produces less CO as compared to other units of gas. Incomplete combusion results in creation of poisonous CO. It occurs when supply of oxygen is poor.
