Solution

## The correct option is C Both The explanation for the correct answerOption (c ) :BothA mixture is a substance made up of two or more substances that are not chemically bonded e.g. airAir is a mixture, but not a compound because air can be separated into different components such as oxygen, nitrogen, etc. through the process of fractional distillation. Also, air shows all the properties of gases present in it.Since air is a mixture of gases. Therefore, it will show the property of both oxygen and nitrogen present in it. ${\mathrm{N}}_{2}$ is present in the air, since air is a mixture many other gasses are also present along with ${\mathrm{N}}_{2}$. Since air is a mixture of gases, therefore along with oxygen,${\mathrm{N}}_{2}$ is also present in the environment. Air is a mixture, therefore, along with nitrogen and oxygen, many other gases such as carbon dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, argon etc.Hence, option (C) is the correct answer.
