Solution

## The correct options are A 30 mL, 60 mL, 10 mL B 30 mL, 50 mL, 20 mLKOH absorbs CO2 gas, so contraction in volume is due to CO2 absorption.2CO+O2→2CO2, so total volume of CO2 formed is 80 mL.(A) 10 mL of O2 reacts with 20 mL CO and 20 mL CO2 forms, so total volume of CO2 is 80 mL.(B) 15 mL of O2 reacts with 30 mL CO and 30 mL CO2 forms, so total volume of CO2 is 80 mL.
