Question

Which of the following is added to LPG to indicate a leak?
  1. Methane
  2. Ethyl mercaptan
  3. Hydrogen sulphide
  4. Water


Solution

The correct option is B Ethyl mercaptan
LPG is an odourless, inflammable gas. So, to detect a leak substance with a strong distinct odour (ethyl mercaptan) is usually added.  

Hydrogen sulphide has a rotten egg smell, but it is poisonous, one of the many reasons why it is not used.
