Expert Answer:

during combustion unsaturated hydrocarbons having the higher amount of C r not fully oxidised in an insufficient supply of O2   ie H2  +  O2  →  H2O, bt sm C is not oxidised n deposit as soot  bt if there is an excess of O2 THEN EVEN C is oxidised as C+O2→CO2      giving no sooty flame
