Expert Answer:

A non-volatile solute does produce vapour at the boiling point of the solution. They have lower vapour pressure and higher boiling point.

Example: Sugar.

A volatile solute produces vapour at the boiling point of the solution. At the same temperature, they have higher vapour pressure than non-volatile solutes.

Examples: Alcohol, ether, mercury, and gasoline.
