a. Only 1, 2 and 4
b. Only 2 and 4
c. Only 1 and 2
d. None of the above

ANSWER: Only 2 and 4
By burning wastes in incinerators we can generate energy. When the waste is a mix of organic and non - organic material, burning it leads to air pollution. In geothermal energy, the steam contains hydrogen sulphide gas, which has the odor of rotten eggs and can cause air pollution.
