Answer:

It is a compound. Most likely an organic plastic.

Explanation:

An element is a single type of atom. This substance cannot be an element because it “varies in composition”. It cannot be a mixture because it exists in a “solid state” (unless you are counting alloys as mixtures), and it oxidizes with combustion with a high activation energy. Therefore, it is a compound. Most likely an organic plastic.
