Solution:The above statement is true.
The process of separating insoluble solids from a liquid using a filtering device is called filtration. The filtering device can be of different materials using which the impurities can be retained on the filtering device and can be separated from the mixture. Wire mesh, a piece of cotton, a piece of muslin cloth and a strainer can be used as a filtering device. A strainer is like a sieve, a kitchen device which is used to separate a solid from a liquid. For example, a tea strainer is used to filter tea leaves from tea.
