which contradicts #2 above. There actually are two substances that vaporize more readily than methane.


There are two substances that vaporize more readily than methane, but neither of them vaporize less readily than CO. So in other words, no substance vaporizes more readily than methane and less readily than CO. Therefore it is ok, not contraditing to your point #2.

Oops, my bad on C contradicts the passage. I read an "or" instead of but. So I agree that C does not contradict the passage.

However, it fills only one of the gaps. Nitro still has two positions left in the hierarchy.

What's the OA?

Agree with you that (C) does fill only one gap, but i feel it holds up the conclusion much stronger than (A).

I'll stick with (C).

OA ?

Thank you all

All in all, the OA is indeed C.

Welcome more discussions.

another tricky one , where the exact wordings of an option can not be overlooked , i got this wrong. 'less readily than CO but more readily than methane' this sets a boundary condition between which no other substance can lie, and the way it is worded , makes one think about nitrogen being the substance which is more readily vaporized.
