a. Technician A only

b. Technician B only

c. Both A and B

d. Neither A nor B

To determine

The technician with correct approach.

Explanation

Given information:

Technician A says that gasoline can be used as a source of hydrogen for a fuel cell.

Technician B says that carbon dioxide can be used as a source of hydrogen for a fuel cell.

Hydrogen is used as a source of energy in fuel cells. It is used as fuel for running electric vehicles. It is present in the form of a compound, for example, hydrogen and oxygen combine to form water. Hydrogen and carbon combine in a stochiometric ratio to form hydrocarbons. Hydrogen can also be separated from gasoline which is a fossil fuel.

Hydrogen can also be separated from hydrocarbons by using reformers. Reformers help in extracting hydrogen by using high-temperature steam. It can also be separated by using electrolysis.

Fuel cells used in electric vehicles use hydrogen for a source of energy...
