										Sol. (a) is correct because in the limit of large volume, both intermolecular force and molecular volume becomes negligible in comparison to volume of gas.
(b) is wrong statement because in the limit of large pressure Z > 1.
(c) is correct statement. For a van der Waals’ gas, van der Waals’ constants ‘a’ and ‘b’ are characteristic of a gas, independent of temperature.
(d) is wrong statement because ‘Z’ can be either less or greater than unity, hence real pressure can be less or greater than ideal pressure.
