Among the following types of coal which one is regarded as the highest grade of coal with a shining surface and having the highest calorific value?

Options :
  1. Bituminous
  2. Lignite
  3. Anthracite
  4. Peat
Answer and Explanation :-

Answer: Option 3


Anthracite is a hard, compact variety of mineral coal that has a high luster. It has the highest carbon content, the fewest impurities, and the highest calorific content of all types of coal, which also include bituminous coal and lignite. Anthracite is the most metamorphosed type of coal (but still represents low-grade metamorphism), in which the carbon content is between 92.1% and 98%. The principal use of anthracite today is for a domestic fuel in either hand-fired stoves or automatic stoker furnaces.
