Question

The end products of burning a candle in the atmosphere are water and 

Options

A) carbon (II) oxide

B) sulphur (IV) oxide

C) carbon (IV) oxide

D) sulphur (VI) oxide


The correct answer is C.

Explanation:

When we ignite a candle, the hydrocarbon reacts with oxygen (in excess) to produce carbon dioxide and water. The burning sets an air current which gives dome shape to candle flame and it helps to get complete combustion at the bottom and the outer surface of the flame.

CO\(_2\) is produced.
