# Chemical oxygen is determined by using

$\begin{array}{1 1}(a)\;Methyl\;orange&(b)\;K_2Cr_2O_7+50\%H_2SO_4\\(c)\;CaOCl_2+50\%H_2SO_4&(d)\;Alum+CaO\end{array}$

Chemical oxygen is determined by using $K_2Cr_2O_7+50\%H_2SO_4$
Organic and oxidizable inorganic substances in the sample are oxidized by potassium dichromate in 50% sulfuric acid solution at reflux temperature. Silver sulfate is used as a catalyst and mercuric sulfate is added to remove chloride interference. The excess dichromate is titrated with standard ferrous ammonium sulfate, using orthophenanthroline ferrous complex as an indicator.
Hence (b) is the correct answer.
