  2. Tin is cheaper than Iron
  3. Tin is lighter than Iron
  4. Tin is more reactive than Iron

The correct option is A Tin is less reactive than Iron

Tin is less reactive than Iron, therefore food items does not react with the container and remain good for long. If iron is used to preserve food, the food item containing water will react with iron and get spoilt.
