Solution

## The correct option is B 5.14 gaccording to the question, the number of moles of sulphur dioxide is one half the number of moles of carbon dioxide.Hence, the number of moles of sulphur will be one half the number of moles of carbon. Let the mixture contains x g of carbon and 12−x g of sulphurThe no of moles of carbon and sulphur are x/44 and (12−x)/64 respectively.According to the question, x44=2(12−x64).So, x=5.14g. So the correct answer is B
