In an experiment to study the properties of ethanoic acid, a
student takes about 3 mL of ethanoic acid in a dry test tube. He
adds an equal amount of distilled water to it and shakes the test
tube well. After some time he is likely to observe that
(A) a colloid is formed in the test tube.
(B) the ethanoic acid dissolves readily in water.
(C) the solution becomes light orange.
(D) water floats over the surface of ethanoic acid.

When ethanoic acid and distilled water are mixed with each other, they form a clear solution, as ethanoic acid is completely miscible with water.
Hence, the correct option is B.
