Solution

Carbon tetrachloride ia a non polar covalent compound. It do not ionize in water. Since water is a polar covalent compound that is it has positively and negatively charged ends but the non-polar covalent compounds do not have any kind of charge separation. So water molecules of non polar compound and break apart the intermolecules, this is the reason for which CCI4 is insoluble in water.
