Question

Arrange the following substances in the increasing order of the force of attraction between their particles.
  1. Salt < juice < air
  2. Water < air < salt
  3. Oxygen < water < sugar
  4. Oxygen < sugar < oil


Solution

The correct option is C Oxygen < water < sugar
Matter consists of tiny particles and they have a force of attraction between them.

Force of attraction between solid particles is greater than liquid particles. Also, the force of attraction between liquid particles is greater than the gaseous particles.

Salt and sugar are solid, juice and water are liquid and the air and oxygen are in the gaseous state. So the salt and sugar have a greater force of attraction between their particles, then water and juice and then air and oxygen.
So, the correct order would be oxygen < water < sugar.
