Some trivial yet interesting questions that your friends asked:

1.Do we only take in introgen since 4/5 of the air is made up of nitrogen?

Yes. We do. When gas enters our nose / mouth, nitrogen is taken in too. Only oxygen is absorbed by our body. Nitrogen and carbon dioxide will leave our body.

2. What is fart made of?
Mainly nitrogen and carbon dioxide, methane (sometimes), hydrogen

3. Is fart flammable?

4. Is the temperature around 40 - 50°C in Libya?
Yes, this is true in summer. Temperatures in the summer can reach 50°C during the day but are more commonly around 40°C.

Hope you enjoy this little short break from your study. Have an early night so that you can perform well tomorrow.
