Q6-10 Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it.

A little more than 1.5 billion tonnes of steel was produced globally in 2012, according to the World Steel Association. Steel-making first involves the extraction of iron (a major component of steel) from iron ore. The process, in turn, is hugely energy intensive and polluting—itself accounting for around 5% of global greenhouse gas emissions. The search for a cleaner method of extracting iron from its ore, thus, has been a long-held dream—one that has intensified in the current environment of growing concern over global warming. Till now, little progress was made in this regard, but NASA’s lunar missions seem to have provided a significant breakthrough. In a paper published in Nature, Donald Sadoway of MIT writes that NASA’s aim at one point was to find a way to produce oxygen on the moon.
