We're being asked to match the vapor pressure diagrams with the solute–solvent combinations and explain our answers.
Let's first identify the solute-solvent interaction here:
We’re going to use the theory “likes” dissolving “likes” which states that the solvent can only completely dissolve the solute if they share similar polarity.
• Therefore, a pure solvent with similar polarity can successfully dissolve a solute to create a solution.
The given compounds are:
