a b and c (sic) are letters.

You have not specified exactly what it is that you do not understand.

Do you understand the concept of pure substance and mixture?

a) explain whether the distilled water was contaminated.
B) suggest how the contaminant might have been seperated from the water.
C) Explain whether the contaminant was pure.

Please help tell me what the answers are because I don't know
a) Yes the water sample is contaminated (as water has a boiling point of 100 degrees Celsius).

b) You can separate the contaminant from the water by vaporizing the water.

c) No, because the meltping point of the crystal contaminants vary, the contaminant isn't pure.
