1. D
CH4 (g) + 2O2(g) CO2(g) + 2H2O(l)
C2H6(g) + 7/2O2(g) 2CO2(g) + 3 H2O(l)
The gas absorbed by KOH is CO2.
CO2(g) + 2OH-(aq) CO32-(aq) + H2O(l)
Volume of CO2 produced by CH4 = 10 cm3
Volume of CO2 produced by C2H6 = 20 cm3
Total volume = 10 + 20 = 30 cm3
2. D
Molar ration of M:O
= 0.02 : (2x0.025)
=2:5
3. C
4KClO3 3KClO4 + KCl
Amount of KClO4 produced = x 0.1 = 0.0750 mol
4. B
CxHy + (x+y/4)O2 xCO2 + y/2H2O
1 volume of CxHy produces x volumes of CO2 and y/2 volumes of H2O vapour.
Therefore, from the data, x=3 and y/2 = 2.
5. D
Aqueous NaOH absorbs CO2 and the remaining gas is N2.
Amount of urea = 0.120/60 = 2.00 x 10-3 mol
Volume of N2 = 2 x (2.00 x 10-3) x 24000 = 96.0 cm3
6. B
1 mol of H- gives 1 mol of H2. The salt with the greatest amount of H- will therefore
give the highest amount of H2.
7. D
2H2 + O2 2H2O
O2 is the limiting reagent. Therefore, max decrease in volume = 10 + 20 = 30 cm3
8. D
Let x be the number of C atoms per molecule of X. Therefore, 1 mole of X will
produce x moles of CO2 when completely burnt in O2.
Amount of X used = 0.112/22.4 = 5.00 x 10-3 mol
Amount of CO2 produced = 0.88/ (12.0 + 2(16.0)) = 2.00 x 10-2 mol
(5.00 x10-4)x = 2.00 x 10-2
x=4
9. A
Amount of H+ = amount of OH- = 0.1 x 24/1000 = 0.0024 mol (in 20 cm3)
Amount of Cl- = 0.1 x 48/1000 = 0.0048 mol (in 20 cm3)
Ratio of H+ : Cl- = 0.0024 : 0.0048 = 1 : 2

11. A
CH4 + 2O2 CO2 + 2H2O
CH4 + 3/2O2 CO + 2H2O
Volume of O2 required for first equation = (y x 0.99) x 2 dm3
Volume of O2 required for second equation = (y x 0.01) x 3/2 dm3
Hence total volume of O2 required = [(y x 0.99) x 2] + [(y x 0.01) x 3/2]
= 2y 0.01y/2 dm3
13. D
2AgNO3 + BaCl2 2AgCl + Ba(NO3)2
