    1. Correct answer is decantation.
      Decantation is followed by sedimentation. Decantation is the process by which sedimented liquid is separated by pouring it in the other container very slowly without disturbing the settled sediments at the bottom of the container. Sedimentation is the process of settling down of heavy insoluble impurities.

    2. Yes . Decantation is the right answer ...

  3. Yeah ... Its very helpful for my online exam ...

  4. it WAS helpful but it would be more helpful if it was in mock-test format

  5. These helps in my online test thanks

  6. Posting the answers next to each question would have been really convenient.
