The catalytic converter converts toxic gases into compounds such as ______.
Carbon dioxide.
Carbon monoxide.
Hydrocarbons.
Nitrogen oxides.
Detailed Explanation
Catalytic converters are emissions control devices found in the exhaust systems of vehicles. They contain catalysts that facilitate chemical reactions to convert harmful gases produced by the engine into less harmful compounds. In the case of a catalytic converter, it helps convert carbon monoxide (CO), hydrocarbons (HC), and nitrogen oxides (NOx) into carbon dioxide (CO2), water (H2O), and nitrogen (N2).
