The natural source of hydrocarbon is 

(1) Crude oil 

(2) Biomass 

(3) Coal 

(4) Carbohydrates 

Answer: (1) In organic chemistry, a hydrocarbon is an organic compound consisting entirely of hydrogen and carbon. Hydrocarbons from which one hydrogen atom has been removed are functional groups called hydrocarbyls. Aromatic hydrocarbons (arenes), alkanes, alkenes, cycloalkanes, and alkyne-based compounds are different types of hydrocarbons. The majority of hydrocarbons found naturally occur in crude oil, where decomposed organic matter provides an abundance of carbon and hydrogen, which, when bonded, can catenate to form seemingly limitless chains.
