  1. In no 4 d is the best option because destructive distillation Is the process of heating coal to high temperature in the absence of air in order for all the volatile component to distill over.
    And the product are coke,coal tar,coal gas and ammoniacal liquor.

  2. In no 3 c is best option because the catalyst used in contact process is V2O5

  3. In no 5 A is correct because gunpowder is an intimate mixture of NaNo3 or KNo3,charcoal and sulphur.
    When gunpowder is ignited it burns to release nitrogen gas and oxide of sulphur and carbon
    In this case KNo3 is reduced to nitrogen gas I.e oxidant or oxidizing agent
    While carbon and sulphur is oxidized I.e reducdant or reducing agent.

  4. To back up the answer in no 1
    Mortal Is not used for under water construction because it hardens by Loss of water.
