The correct description of the cube of material cut from the inside of an apple.
The correct description is that “it consists of a heterogeneous mixture of elements and compounds” and it corresponds to option (d).
An element is a pure substance made up of only one kind of atoms and a compound is a pure substance that has a fixed composition.
A cube material cut from the inside of an apple consists of a mixture of compounds such as sugar, water and also of different elements such as sodium, potassium etc. Basically its flesh is a homogeneous mixture of all these compounds and elements.
It also has seeds and peel that makes it heterogeneous. Since a cube of apple has all of these so it is a heterogeneous mixture. Vitamin A, vitamin C and fiber are contained in its peel. So, the composition of peel is different from the composition of its flesh.
Thus, it consists of a heterogeneous mixture of elements and compound.
Hence, only option (d) is correct.
cube of material cut from the inside of an apple is a heterogeneous mixture of elements and compounds.
