hmm, not quite. being colorless/inflammable are properties that elements can also have by themselves. think about what compound means - a substance made of multiple elements. water is a compound made up of hydrogen and oxygen. with that in mind, is there a better answer choice?
yeah, ok, go ahead and tell me what you think based on what I said
A seems like the best answer
that's a good guess - but there are elements, not compounds, that also have mass and take up space. we want a property unique to compounds. water molecules are made up hydrogen and oxygen. water can be separated into hydrogen and oxygen through a chemical process. therefore, D is the best choice.
Oh ok makes sense ty
