Correct Answer - Option 1 : China

The correct answer is China.

  • By the year 2014, according to available information, China is the leading producer of tin in the world.

  • Tin is a relatively rare element with an abundance in the earth's crust of about 2 parts per million (ppm).
  • It is used as a protective coating or as an alloy with other metals such as lead or zinc.
    • Cassiterite (SnO2) is the only mineral of commercial importance as a source of tin.
  • Tin is also found in trace amounts in minerals like stannite, cylindrite, franckeite, canfieldite, and teallite.
  • According to the stats, China is the leading producer of tin followed by Indonesia and Myanmar.

  • Brazil is the leading producer of iron ore and copper.
  • Malaysia is one of the leading producers of Bauxite.
