Answer:

Is #"ethylene glycol"# soluble in what solvent..........??

Explanation:

As a matter of fact #"ethylene glycol"# IS soluble in water, and in a variety of organic solvents (but not hexanes). And why should it be soluble in water? Well, it has got two hydroxyl groups at each terminus of the molecule, which should certainly promote miscibility in aqueous solution.
