Solution :-

The evidence on the origin of life from inanimate matter was provided by Stanley L. Miller and Harold C. Urey's experiment, which was conducted in 1953. They created an artificial environment which was reminiscent of the early earth’s atmosphere - it contained ammonia, hydrogen and other gases which were thought to have existed during primordial earth.

This concoction of gases was kept at a temperature slightly below 100 ° C. Additionally, sparks were generated to simulate lightning, which was also thought to be common during that period. At the end of the experiment, he was able to create 11 out of the 20 amino acids which is required for life.
