    Which of the following teeth function in the same way as the object shown in the picture?

    • A.

      (A) Incisors

    • B.

      (B) Canines

In liquids, the particles are not as closely packed as in solids, but they still exert pressure on the walls of the container they are in. In gases, the particles are far apart and move freely, exerting pressure in all directions. Therefore, all three states of matter exert pressure.

    Correct Answer
    C. To remove pure or harmless components
    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "To remove pure or harmless components." This is an incorrect reason for separating components of a mixture because the purpose of separation is usually to obtain the pure sample of a substance or to remove undesirable and useless components, not to remove pure or harmless components. Separating pure or harmless components would not serve any practical purpose in most cases.
