Which of the following statements is not correct?

  1. (a) Mercury is a common impurity in coal.
  2. (b) Burning of coal is a source of sulfur dioxide air pollution.
  3. (c) Oxygen gas is a component in some sources of natural gas.
  4. (d) Natural gas is preferred over coal for electricity generation.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: It should be identified from the following statement is correct or not.

Concept Introduction:

Natural gas like Carbon dioxide and gasoline contain Oxygen and it is a component of the source of natural gas.

Gasoline sold today often contain C2H5OH ethanol, if the ethanol is derived from the fermentation of material derived from biological sources, then it is sometimes referred as Bioethanol.

Explanation of Solution

Reason for correct option

Natural gas like Carbon dioxide and gasoline contain Oxygen and it is a component of the source of natural gas.

Gasoline sold today often contain C2H5OH ethanol, if the ethanol is derived from the fermentation of material derived from biological sources, then it is sometimes referred as Bioethanol.

This option (c) hold good and it’s a true fact
