The compound A on heating gives a colourless gas and a residue that is dissolved in water to obtain B. Excess of CO2 is bubbled through aqueous solution of B, C is formed which is recovered in the solid form. Solid C on gentle heating gives back A. The compound is
A
CaCO3
B
Na2CO3
C
K2CO3
D
CaSO4$$ \cdot $$2H2O

Explanation

A $$\buildrel \Delta \over \longrightarrow $$ colourless gas + residue

Residue + H2O $$ \to $$ B $$\buildrel {excess\,\,C{O_2}} \over \longrightarrow $$ C $$\buildrel \Delta \over \longrightarrow $$ A

This is possible only when ‘A’ is CaCO3. The reactions are as follow :
