###### Problem Details

Rank the following in terms of decreasing miscibility in C 8H18 (octane): C2H5Cl (chloroethane), H2O (water), C2H5F (fluoroethane), C9H20 (nonane).

1. H2O > C9H20 > C2H5Cl > C2H5F

2. C9H20 > C2H5Cl > C2H5F > H2O

3. C2H5Cl > C2H5F > H2O > C9H20

4. C2H5F > H2O > C9H20 > C2H5Cl
