   (ii) Bituminous coal
   
   
   (iii) Ligite coal

   Out of all the four types of coal Anthracite coal is the best type of coal
   that can be used for industrial purposes as anthracite coal has a high
   carbon content of about 80% and hence has a high calorific value and thus
   produces a lot of energy.
