Q

Which of the following is a heterogeneous mixture?

A. A solution of a solid in a liquid

B. A solution of a solid in another solid

C. A mixture of a gas in a liquid

D. A mixture of a solid in another solid

A

Answer: D. A mixture of a solid in another solid

When the composition of a mixture is not uniform, such a mixture is called a heterogeneous mixture. With this, it is clear that two or more different phases are required to build a heterogeneous mixture. Mixing two solids will therefore not produce one. Some examples include sand and water, kerosene and water, etc.
