    Elements: calcium, iron.

    Compounds: water, propane, ATP.

    Homogeneous mixture: kool aid.

    Heterogeneous mixture: lemons.

    Milk is a mixture; it's homogeneous if it's been "homogenized." (Duh !!)

    Tricky: Quartz -- it's MOSTLY the compound SiO2, but usually includes some other trace elements, so I guess you have to call it a mixture.

    They are all "Substances"; you need to know if they are "Pure substances". There is just one kind of a pure substance. Like Calcium. There are many kinds of mixtures. Like Kool aid. Now try it.
