At Anode : ( 40 H^{-} rightarrow 2 H_{2} O+O_{2}+4 e^{-} ) At cathode ( : 40 H^{+} 4 e^{-} rightarrow 2 H_{2} ) If number of moles of electron transferred=4 Number of moles of oxyzen liberated=1 Number of moles of hydrogen liberated=2 So total moles of gases ( =3 ) Volume of gases ( =3 times 22.4=67.2 )litre Hence (c) is the correct answer.
