State two reasons for supposing that brass is a mixture and not a compound.
Brass is a mixture and not a compound because in compound the elements should be in definite proportions and the elements are chemically bonded to each other.
Whereas in brass the two elements Zn & Cu are not in definite proportions (they can mix in any ratio) & there is no chemical bonding between them.
