I did evaporation I think you can do either because it said separation of a soluble solid in a liquid which indicates evaporation

But it say separate the dissolved substance from the water but STILL having the pure water there so the only its not evaporation it is distillation

I'm not going to argue whether it's Evaporation, Distillation or Ion Exchange until the paper is uploaded onto the site.

There is no way it is evaporation. It is distillation or something called desalination which is in my book

Thank you. I might be wrong but i said you Could use a liebig condenser to have pure water there after.

Liebig condenser is in distillation

Oh sorry hahaha im not every good at science haha

In my opinion it was distillation. The only way to get pure/distilled water I know of in the JC course is distillation, unless you wanna do these http://scienceline.ucsb.edu/getkey.php?key=643
