Air Pollution Quizzes & Trivia

This quiz will test your knowledge on Nitrogen Oxides.

Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    They are gases composed of

    • A.

      Oxygen and argon

    • B.

      Nitrogen and carbon dioxide

    • C.

      Nitrogen and oxygen

    Correct Answer
    C. Nitrogen and oxygen
    The correct answer is nitrogen and oxygen. Nitrogen and oxygen are two of the most abundant gases in the Earth's atmosphere. Nitrogen makes up about 78% of the atmosphere, while oxygen makes up about 21%. These two gases are essential for supporting life on Earth, as oxygen is necessary for respiration and nitrogen plays a crucial role in the nitrogen cycle, which is important for the growth of plants and other organisms.

    Name two such gases that causes air pollution

    Correct Answer
    Nitric Oxide
    Nitrogen Dioxide
    Nitric oxide and nitrogen dioxide are two gases that contribute to air pollution. Nitric oxide is produced from burning fossil fuels, particularly in vehicles and power plants. It reacts with oxygen in the air to form nitrogen dioxide, which is a brownish gas and a major component of smog. Both gases are harmful to human health and can cause respiratory problems, contribute to the formation of acid rain, and contribute to the greenhouse effect and climate change.

      Reddish brown

    Correct Answer
    C. Reddish brown
    Sulfur dioxide is reddish brown in color. This is because when sulfur dioxide is exposed to air, it reacts with oxygen to form sulfur trioxide, which is a reddish brown gas. Therefore, sulfur dioxide itself appears reddish brown in color.
