Hi NIKIT,


let x moles of formic acid.... and y moles of oxalic acid......


then CO produced from formic acid is x moles


and y moles of CO and y moles of CO2 from oxalic acid.


KOH ansorbs only CO2


therefore the ratio of volume absorbed by KOH is y/(x+2y)


y/(x+2y)=1/6


6y=2y+x


4y=x


therefore x:y=4:1
