What will happen if two different alkyl halides are taken in Wurtz reaction?

Solution:

If two different alkyl halides are used in the Wurtz reaction to prepare an alkane with an odd number of carbon atoms, then a mixture of three alkanes is produced. It is because the two alkyl halides in addition to reacting with each other also react among themselves giving a mixture of three alkanes.
