Answer: Option 'C'

Fructose is an Organic molecule among the given options.

 Organic Molecules :

An organic molecule is one which contains carbon, although not all compounds that contain carbon are organic molecules. Noticeable exceptions are carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2), carbonates (e.g. calcium carbonate), carbides (e.g. calcium carbide) and cyanides (e.g. sodium cyanide). Pure carbon compounds such as diamond and graphite are also not organic compounds. Organic molecules can range in size from simple molecules to complex structures containing thousands of atoms.

Although carbon is present in all organic compounds, other elements such as hydrogen (H), oxygen(O), nitrogen (N), sulfur (S) and phosphorus (P) are also common in these molecules.

In simple, Molecules needed for life that have carbon are called Organic Molecules.

  • 49. Ozone is concentrated in the

Answer: Option 'B'

Most of the ozone in the atmosphere is found in the layer of stratosphere, which begins about 10.16 kilometers (6.10 miles) above Earth's surface and extends up to about 50 kilometers (31 miles) altitude.

  • 50. Tetraethyl lead is used as
   A.) Mosquito repellent
   B.) Gasoline additive
   C.) Fire extinguisher
   D.) Pain killer

Answer: Option 'B'

Tetraethyl lead is a highly toxic compound used as a gasoline additive.

Tetraethyl lead abbreviated as TEL, is an organo lead compound with the formula (CH3CH2)4Pb. It is a petro-fuel additive which in turn caused increased vehicle performance. This is also used as an antiknock agent in gasoline and jet fuels. Tetraethyl lead is absorbed rapidly by the skin, the lungs, and the gastrointestinal tract. It is converted to triethyl lead, which might be responsible for its toxicity.
