Explain why fossil fuels are exhaustible natural resources.

Video Explanation

Answer

Exhaustible natural resources are those which have reserves of limited time span and will be finished in due course of time. These resources once depleted cannot be replenished back. It takes millions of years for the formation of fossil fuels. The rate at which we are using them is very fast compared to the rate of their formation. Due to this, fossil fuels are exhaustible in nature.
