2.It takes place in a state of matter called plasma.
Which of the statements given above is/are correct?

[B] 2 only

[C] Both 1 and 2

[D] Neither 1 nor 2

Answer: B

Explanation: Nuclear Fusion is a process by which two light atomic nuclei (for example tritium and deuterium) combine to form a single heavier (Helium) one while releasing massive amounts of energy.

Fusion reactions take place in a state of matter called plasma, a hot, charged gas made of positive ions and free-moving electrons with unique properties distinct from solids, liquids, or gases.
