Answer:

  1. B

 

  1. B

 

  1. B

 

  1. A

Explanation: Calorific value of methane is 55 KJ/g and of LPG is 50 KJ/g

 

  1. B

Explanation: Among the given fuels LPG has highest calorific value and it does not produce carbon monoxide and carbon particles also. Hence it is the best domestic fuel.

CNG is used as fuel in automobiles.

 

  1. C

 

  1. A

Explanation: The flame produced by complete combustion of fuel is blue in colour. For complete combustion excess of oxygen is required. So with the

 

  1. A

Explanation: Water cannot be used as fire extinguisher in electric fires and also fire caused by oil. In other type of fires water is used as fire extinguisher.

 

  1. B

 

  1. A

Due to incomplete combustion of wood/charcoal carbon monoxide and carbon particles are produced.
