Solution

The correct option is B Fractional
If the difference between the boiling points of the mixture of miscible liquids is less than 25 C, then fractional distillation is used to separate components of the mixture.

Crude oil which is drilled out from the depth of the Earth, is a mixture of hydrocarbons (petrol, kerosene, diesel etc.) and the difference in the boiling points of these components is less than 25 C.
Hence, fractional distillation is the method used to obtain the different components (petrol, kerosene, diesel etc.) from crude oil.
