Expert Answer:

First, of we need to separate oil from the sugar water and to separate oil from their mixtures.

Separating funnel is used to separate the mixture of two immiscible liquids. Oil and water do not mix with each other and form two separate layers. The mixture separates into two layers according to their densities. The heavier liquid (water) forms the lower layer whereas the lighter liquid forms the upper layer (kerosene). Thus, the water is first collected in the beaker. and the kerosene is collected in another beaker.

Then use evaporation process to separate sugar from water.
