Dissolve mixture in water. Common salt dissolves but sulphur and sand are insoluble in water. Filter the solution. sulphur and sand will get collected on the filter paper. Evaporate the solution to get common salt

Collect the residue (Sand and Sulphur powder)and dissolve it in carbon disulphide, CS2. Sulphur dissolves in carbon disulphide but sand is insoluble in carbon disulphide. Filter the solution and evaporate it to get sulphur. Sand is dried on filter paper.
