We have to find a relation between the polarity of a liquid and its miscibility with water.

Miscibility is a property that describes the ability of two liquids to mix in all proportions and make a homogenous mixture (solution).

The miscibility of two liquids is linked to the type of intermolecular forces present in both liquids.

As a general rule: like dissolves like.

Polar liquids tend to mix well with polar liquids and nonpolar liquids tend to mix well with nonpolar liquids.
