Solution

The correct options are
B In a suspension, the particles can be seen with naked eye whereas, in a colloidal solution, they cannot be.
C Both can scatter light and make its path visible.
A suspension is prepared by dissolving solid particles into the liquid. The solid particles in such solutions do not dissolve and are visible to the naked eye. They scatter a beam of light passing through it and make its path visible. A colloidal solution also shows such light scattering phenomenon except that the particles are relatively smaller in size.
