Question

# The azeotropic mixture of water (b.pt.${{100}^{0}}C$) and HCl (b.pt. ${{85}^{0}}C$) boils at ${{108.5}^{0}}C$. When this mixture is distilled, it is possible to obtain: A ) Pure $HCl$ B ) pure waterC ) pure water as well as $HCl$D ) neither $HCl$nor water in their pure states.

Same is also valid for the azeotropic mixture of water and $HCl$. When this mixture is boiled, the composition remains the same throughout. The mixture collected in the receiving flask will also have the same composition.
