Textbook Problem

While discussing automotive emissions: Technician A says that oxygen emissions are monitored because they are an indication of the completeness of the combustion process. Technician B says that the conditions for minimizing HC emissions are the same as those that cause high NOx emissions. Who is correct?

a. Technician A only

b. Technician B only

c. Both A and B

d. Neither A nor B

To determine

The correct technician among A and B who are discussing the automotive emissions.

Explanation

There are many gases which are comprised under the automotive emissions. These gases are Hydrocarbons, nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxides, and oxygen. All these gases are dangerous to the environment except oxygen. Although oxygen is safe, but the level of oxygen should be checked in the emission, as it helps to determine whether proper combustion of the air-fuel mixture is happening inside the engine cylinder. This implies that technician A is correct.

Further, as these gases are dangerous in nature, their quantities in emission rely on many factors...
