Give reason: a)Sodium chloride in its solid state do not conduct electricity whereas sodium chloride in its liquid state conducts electricity b)Pure water is a good conductor of electricity
b)Pure water is a good conductor of electricity
No, pure water is a poor conductor of electricity because it lacks the ions for the conduction of electricity. Impure water contains dissolved salts whose ions conduct electricity. Hence, its impure water which conducts electricity.

Purest form of water is a poor conductor of electricity because it doesn't contain any dissolved impurities.The dissolved impurities in the water make it a conductor of electricity.
