Please find below the solution to question number 6:
Option B is correct.
Water is a compound can be supported by the following facts:
� Its constituents Hydrogen and oxygen are always present in the same ratio as 2:1(H2O)
� Its properties are different from its constituent elements(hydrogen and oxygen)
� Its constituents cannot be separated by simple physical means but requires chemical methods. Also water has a fixed boiling point, which is different from that of both hydrogen and oxygen.

Water is considered as a compond because-
*Water is composed of two elements-hydrogen and oxygen.
*The ratio of hydrogen and oxygen by mass in any sample of pure water is the same.
*The properties of water are different from its constituents elements-hydrogen and oxygen.
*Water can be decomposed by chemical means only (E.g - Electrolytically) into hydrogen and oxygen.
