Soda water is a soft drink that is often produced by simply dissolving carbon (iv) oxide in water. Other soft drinks too are often made refreshing by dissolving carbon (iv) oxide gas into the drink before cocking.

Now for the right answer to the above question:

  1. Option A is correct. Dissolved carbon (iv) oxide is responsible for the refreshing bubbles that often greet a drinker when a properly cocked soft drink is cracked open for consumption.
  2. Option B is incorrect. no, not carbon (ii) oxide.
  3. C is incorrect. redundant option.
  4. D is not the correct answer. Glucose can be responsible for sweet tastes, but not the gaseous refreshing taste, besides, soda water does not contain glucose.
