Solution

The correct option is C

Dacron


The explanation for the correct option

Option (c) Dacron

  • Dacron is a condensation polymer.
  • The condensation polymers are formed by repeated condensation reactions between two different bi-functional or tri-functional monomeric units.
  • In these polymerization reactions, the elimination of small molecules such as water, alcohol, hydrogen chloride, etc. takes place.

The explanation for incorrect options

Option a) Teflon

  • Since Teflon is made up of monomeric units through addition polymerization.
  • This option is incorrect.

Option b) Polystyrene

  • As there is no loss of any neutral molecule during polymerization of Styrene.
  • Thus this is not a condensation reaction.
  • The option is incorrect.

Option d) PVC

  • Polyvinyl chloride is formed by the addition polymerization of Vinyl chloride.
  • This option is incorrect.

Hence, a condensation polymer is Dacron, option (C) is the correct answer.
