Power and manure both are produced by
A) Thermal plant
B) Nuclear plant
C) Bio-gas plant
D) Hydroelectric plant

Answer Verified Verified
Hint: Power plant harnesses the renewable and non-renewable sources of energy. The clean energy resources can be nuclear power, wind, solar, geothermal, and hydroelectric or fossil fuels.

Complete Answer:
For solving this question, we must know the types of power plants and what kind of energy they yield.

The types of power plants are as follows-
A) Thermal Plant- A thermal power station is a power plant in which heat energy is converted into electric energy. These power stations used fuel oil, burning oil, or solar energy.
B) Nuclear Plant- It is a power station in which the heat source is a nuclear reactor. The fission in a nuclear reactor generates heat which is converted into electricity. Nuclear reactors rely on Uranium which is a heavy metal.
C) Hydro-electric Plant- It is the power station which uses hydro energy as the source. The water from the river generates electricity.
D) Bio-gas Plant- A biogas plant is where biogas is produced by the fermentation of organic matter. The energy crops such as corn or waste materials are used in the production of methane-containing gas. The by-product of this fermentation reaction is manure.

Thus the correct answer is (C). Power and manure both are produced by Biogas plants.

Note: Biogas is produced through processing of various types of organic waste. The microbes act on the waste and produce methane and manure. This methane is of natural gas quality and is transported for household activities.
