Q. 15.0( 1 Vote )

When the material P mined from the earth is heated strongly in an insufficient supply of air, it produces a solid fuel Q which mainly consist of carbon. When another material R obtained from trees is heated in an insufficient supply of air, it produces another solid fuel S which also consists mainly of carbon. Then, which of the following is true?
A. P-coke

B. Q-coal

C. R-charcoal

D. None of the above

Answer :

The material mined from earth and when heated strongly in an insufficient supply of air gives a solid fuel which is rich in carbon indicates that the material P is also very rich in carbon and hence the material has to be coal because coal is mined from earth and on incomplete combustion it gives a solid fuel.

The solid fuel Q is coke.


R obtained from trees which signify that wood is the only tree part which when heated in insufficient supply of oxygen gives a carbon-rich compound.


S obtained on burning wood is charcoal.


But none of the options match with our answers.


So correct answer is D.
