Explanation: 
Matter can be broken down into two categories: pure substances and mixtures. 
Pure substances are further broken down into elements and compounds.
Examples: Gold, Oxygen, Nitrogen

Mixtures consist of two or more different kinds of particles or two or more pure substances mixed together but not chemically bound.
Example: The sugar solution is a mixture because it can be separated into its constituents by physical processes (like evaporation). It shows the properties of both sugar and water.
