Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Perfect. Those were the ones I'm talking about! :) Now let's look at those other options, shall we? Well, petrol  what is that used for, commonly? I can list a few... cars, airplanes.... Hmmm... Coal was commonly used to fuel trains, ships, and to keep people warm... Look at the time frame this question is speaking about. Which could be eliminated, coal or petrol?
