Solution

Purity of gold:

  • Carat is the unit by which the purity of gold can be determined.
  • The purest form of gold is 24-carat gold because it is not alloyed with any other metal.
  • Hence, the purest form of gold is not used to make jewelry because gold is a soft metal.
  • Gold with a lower carat unit indicates that has been alloyed with other metals to make it durable.
