What does synthesis gas (water gas) consist of?

oxygen (O2) and hydrogen (H2)
methane (CH4) and water (H2O)
carbon dioxide (CO2) and hydrogen (H2)
carbon monoxide (CO) and hydrogen (H2)
Water gas is a mixture of carbon monoxide and hydrogen produced from syn­the­sis gas. Syn­the­sis gas is a useful product, but requires careful handling due to its flamma­bil­i­ty and the risk of carbon monoxide poi­son­ing. The wa­ter-­gas shift reaction can be used to reduce the carbon monoxide while pro­duc­ing ad­di­tion­al hy­dro­gen, re­sult­ing in water gas.
