      Nitrus Oxide

    • C.

      Ether

    Correct Answer
    A. Carbolic Acid
    Explanation
    Lister used carbolic acid to stop infections. Carbolic acid, also known as phenol, is a disinfectant that kills bacteria and prevents their growth. Lister pioneered the use of carbolic acid as an antiseptic during surgical procedures, significantly reducing the risk of infections. This breakthrough in medical practice revolutionized surgery and greatly improved patient outcomes. Nitrous oxide and ether, on the other hand, are anesthetic gases used to induce anesthesia, but they do not have the same antibacterial properties as carbolic acid.

    A. Sewage

    The idea of using carbolic came from sewage. This suggests that carbolic was initially used as a means to combat the issues and diseases associated with sewage. Carbolic likely proved effective in disinfecting and eliminating bacteria and germs present in sewage, making it a valuable tool in promoting cleanliness and hygiene in areas with sewage problems.

    • C.

      Water

    Correct Answer
    B. Vinger and wine
    Explanation
    Doctors used vinegar and wine to keep the patients' wounds clean. Vinegar and wine have been used for centuries as antiseptics due to their acidic properties. The acetic acid in vinegar and the alcohol in wine can help kill bacteria and prevent infection in wounds. These substances also have a drying effect, which can aid in the healing process. Therefore, doctors would apply vinegar and wine to clean the patients' wounds and promote proper healing.
