    To determine

    The correct statement about engines.

    Explanation of Solution

    The engine is a mechanical device of a vehicle which is used to generate the required power and transmit that power to different parts to propel vehicles on the road. The engine can be broadly divided into two types. They are:

    1. The external combustion engine.
    2. The internal combustion engine.

    The external combustion engines are those in which the air-fuel mixture is burned outside the engine cylinder like in steam engines.

    The internal combustion is classified as those in which the mixture of air and fuel are burned inside the engine cylinder...
