    There is only one way to split crude oil into it’s fractions on an industrial basis…a fluid catalytic cracking tower, known as a cat cracker, the high towers you see at a petroleum refinery.

    You don’t "transform petroleum fractions to meet the high demand of crude" – the question is improperly worded. You may crack higher molecular weight elements to meet the high demand for lighter fractions like gasoline, but that does not excuse the poorly-worded question.
