non aqueous solvent like ether is added to the mixture of LiCl , NaCl and KCl. which of them will be extracted into ether ?

Dear student

In mixture of solid LiCl, NaCl, and KCl. Although all of these salts will be extracted but LiCl is extracted greatly into ether. This observation is attributed to the unusually high solubility of lithium salts in organic solvents. because the ratio of extraction is nearly 94:4:2.
