The question was asked in an interview.

My doubt is from Melting of Steel and Stainless Steel topic in division Foundry Introduction & Materials of Casting-Forming-Welding II

The correct option is A. True

The best explanation: It is not possible to remove copper from steel scraps by the method of conventional refining. It can be removed by treating steel scraps with sulphide fluxes and also by treating it at reduced pressure of the gas phase which basically includes vapourization of copper from the steel scraps.
