As we learnt in 

Reaction of nitric acid with metals -

Product mainly form nitrates (strong oxidising agent). It depends on the concentration of acid.

- wherein

4Zn+10HNO_{3}\rightarrow 4Zn\left ( NO_{3} \right )_{2}+5H_{2}O+N_{2}O

Zn+4HNO_{3}\rightarrow Zn(NO_{3})_{2}+2H_{2}O+2NO_{2}

 

Reaction of Zn with HNO_{3} depends on the concentration of  HNO_{3}

Zn+10HNO_{3}(dil)\rightarrow 4Zn(NO_{3})_{2}+N_{2}O+5H_{2}O

Zn+4HNO_{3}(conc.)\rightarrow Zn(NO_{3})+2NO_{2}+2H_{2}O

 

 


Option 1)

 N2O and NO2

 

This option is correct.

Option 2)

 NO2 and NO

 

This option is incorrect.

Option 3)

 NO and N2O

 

This option is incorrect.

Option 4)

NO2 and N2O

 

This option is incorrect.
