Que 6. Alums purify muddy water by:
(a) dialysis                  (b) adsorption             (c) absorption              (d) coagulation
Ans: (d)
Reason: The stability of the lyophobic sols is due to the presence of charge on colloidal particles. If the charge is removed, particles come together and settle down. Spontaneous destabilization of the solution is ageing and destabilization of the solution by artificial means is called coagulation. Alums purify muddy water by coagulation.

(c) Urea                                                         (d) Calcium chloride
Ans: (c)
Reason: Electrodialysis involves the movement of ions towards oppositely charged electrodes. Urea being a covalent compound does not dissociate to give ions and hence it cannot be removed by electrodialysis. However, all the other given compounds are ionic which can undergo dissociation to give oppositely charged ions and thus can be separated.
