JEE Advanced Previous Year Questions of Chemistry with Solutions are available at eSaral. Practicing JEE Advanced Previous Year Papers Questions of Chemistry will help the JEE aspirants in realizing the question pattern as well as help in analyzing weak & strong areas. Simulator Previous Years JEE Advance Questions Paragraph for questions 1 to 3 Copper is the most nobel of the first row transition metals and occurs in small deposits in several countries. Ores of copper include chalcanthite $\left(\mathrm{CuSO}_{4}, 5 \mathrm{H}_{2} \mathrm{O}\right),$ atacamite $\left(\mathrm{Cu}_{2} \mathrm{Cl}(\mathrm{OH})_{3}\right),$ cuprite $\left(\mathrm{Cu}_{2} \mathrm{O}\right),$ copper glance (Cu.S) and malachite $\left(\mathrm{Cu}_{2}(\mathrm{OH})_{2} \mathrm{CO}_{3}\right) .$ However, $80 \%$ of the world copper production comes from the ore chalcopyrite (CuFeS_{2} ) . \text { The extraction of copper from chalcopyrite involves partial roasting, removal of iron and self-reduction.
Q. Partial roasting of chalcopyrite produces :- (A) $\mathrm{Cu}_{2} \mathrm{S}$ and $\mathrm{FeO}$ (B) $\mathrm{Cu}_{2} \mathrm{O}$ and FeO (C) $\mathrm{CuS}$ and $\mathrm{Fe}_{2} \mathrm{O}_{3}$ (D) $\mathrm{Cu}_{2} \mathrm{O}$ and $\mathrm{Fe}_{2} \mathrm{O}_{3}$ [JEE-2010]
