Question

Mahima was looking at one of the samples kept in a type of coal display. One of the samples intrigued her very much. It looked "brownish-black organic material and almost looked like decayed wood". Could you help her identify the sample?


  1. Ignite

  2. Bituminous

  3. Peat

  4. Anthracite


Solution

The correct option is C

Peat


The brownish-black organic material and almost looked like decayed wood is nothing but the peat coal.

Peat is the first step in the formation of coal, and slowly becomes lignite after pressure and temperature increase as sediment is piled on top.
