A report on Solution (chemistry), Colloid and Mixture
In chemistry, a solution is a special type of homogeneous mixture composed of two or more substances.- Solution (chemistry)
A colloid is a mixture in which one substance consisting of microscopically dispersed insoluble particles is suspended throughout another substance.- Colloid
A mixture is the physical combination of two or more substances in which the identities are retained and are mixed in the form of solutions, suspensions and colloids.- Mixture
A colloid has a dispersed phase and a continuous phase, whereas in a solution, the solute and solvent constitute only one phase.- Colloid
Counter examples are provided by liquid mixtures that are not homogeneous: colloids, suspensions, emulsions are not considered solutions.- Solution (chemistry)

In chemistry, a suspension is a heterogeneous mixture of a fluid that contains solid particles sufficiently large for sedimentation.
A suspension is a heterogeneous mixture in which the solute particles do not dissolve, but get suspended throughout the bulk of the solvent, left floating around freely in the medium.
This distinguishes a suspension from a colloid, in which the colloid particles are smaller and do not settle.
