Answer:
The various postulates of Dalton's atomic theory are:

1) All matter is made of atoms. Atoms are indivisible and indestructible.

2) All atoms of a given element are identical in mass and properties

3) Compounds are formed by a combination of two or more different kinds of atoms.

4) A chemical reaction is a rearrangement of atoms.

Drawbacks: Its major drawback was that it stated that atom is indivisible. But later on when scientists discovered sub-atomic particles, the postulate falied.
