3. An example of recuperative furnace is the
    (A) Soaking pit
    (B) Open hearth furnace
    (C) Coke ovens

    (B) Calcination kiln
    (C) Sintering furnace
    (D) Open hearth furnace

11. Heat transfer rate to the charge/stock in a furnace does not depend upon the
    (A) Type of fuels viz. solid, liquid or gaseous
