The distillation carried out in such a way that the liquid with the lowest boiling point is first evaporated and recondensed, then the liquid with the next higher boiling point is then evaporated and recondensed, and so on until all the available liquid fuels are separately recovered in the sequence of their boiling points. Such a process is called

[A]. cracking
[B]. carbonisation
[C]. fractional distillation
[D]. full distillation

Answer: Option C

**Hydrocarbon cracking is the process of breaking a long-chain of hydrocarbons into short ones.

**Fractional distillation is the separation of a mixture into its component parts, or fractions, such as in separating chemical compounds by their boiling point by heating them to a temperature at which one or more fractions of the compound will vaporize. It is a special type of distillation.

What is full distillation?

Explain it.

Carbonization (or carbonisation) is the term for the conversion of an organic substance into carbon or a carbon-containing residue through pyrolysis or destructive distillation. It is often used in organic chemistry with reference to the generation of coal gas and coal tar from raw coal.

What is full distillation?

Full distillation.

The process of separating the components from liquid mixture by condensing and heating. At final the pure components are separate from the liquid mixture until the condensing and heating process will be continued. It is full distillation.
