Correct Answer - Option 1 : C

the correct answer is Polyethylene.

  • Multi-use water bottles can be made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE), low-density polyethylene (LDPE), copolyester, or polypropylene.
    • All offer the advantage of being durable, lightweight, dishwasher-safe, and BPA-free.
  • Typically, the plastic bottles used to hold potable water and other drinks are made from polyethylene terephthalate (PET), because the material is both strong and light.
  • Polyethylene terephthalate (PET or PETE) plastic – the source material of water bottles, soda bottles, and more — makes up 10.2 percent of global plastic production.

  • Bakelite is a polymer obtained by the polymerization of phenol and formaldehyde.
    • Bakelite was the first FRP discovered by Dr. Baekeland.
  • Polystyrene is a synthetic polymer made from styrene monomer which is a liquid petrochemical.
    • It is a thermoplastic polymer that softens when heated and can reshaped again.
