  1. D

Explanation: Oxygen is a non metal hence it does not react with acids.


  1. B

Explanation: Hydrogen burns with a pop sound.


  1. C

Explanation: All metals are not ductile and malleable. For example : Sodium, potassium, mercury and some other metals are not malleable and ductile.


  1. A


In the absence of air copper does not react with dil. Sulphuric acid or dil. Hydrochloric acid. In the presence of air copper sulphate is formed when copper is treated with dil. sulphuric acid.


  1. C


Metals when burnt in oxygen produce their oxides.


  1. A

Explanation: When wood is burnt in excess of oxygen carbon di oxide is produced.


  1. A

Explanation: If charcoal is burnt in sufficient oxygen, carbon dioxide CO2 will be produced. 
If burnt with insufficient oxygen, then carbon monoxide, CO, will be produced.


  1. D

Explanation: Non metals like nitrogen, phosphorous, sulphur etc. are used in making fertilizers.


  1. B

Explanation: Iodine is a non metal present in tincture iodine which is an antiseptic. It is also called weak iodine solution. Usually 2–7% elemental iodine, along with potassium iodide or sodium iodide, dissolved in a mixture of ethanol and water.
