Solution

Water and kerosene mixture can be separated by using a separating funnel because these two are immiscible liquids and differ in their densities. Kerosene is less dense than water and water comes out first from the separating funnel.

 On the other hand, acetone and water mixture cannot be separated by using a separating funnel because they are miscible liquids. They are rather separated by fractional distillation.

Three mixtures A, B and C are obtained by stirring three different solids in water taken in separate beakers. When mixture A is allowed to stand for some time, then its particles settle at the bottom of the beaker. When a beam of light is passed through mixture A in a dark room, the path of light becomes visible when observed from the side of the beaker. When mixture B is allowed to stand for a considerable time, even then its particles do not settle down. Mixture B, however, scatters the beam of light just like mixture A. The particles of mixture C do not settle down on keeping and it also does not scatter a beam of light passing through it.
