Does pure water conduct electricity? If not, what can we do to make it conducting?.......If asked for 5 mark then what to write?

Dear Student,
Pure water doesn't conduct electricity. It can be made conducting by dissolving ionic compounds, for example, salt into it. Salt (NaCl) dissociates into Na+ and Cl- ions which can respond to electric field and hence water becomes conductive.

No. Pure water does not conduct electricity.  This is because pure water do not contain any salts. Pure water can conduct electricity when common salt is added to it, as salt solution is conducting in nature.
