which is more soluble in kerosene, ethanol or 1-hexanol and why?

kerosene: [CH3(CH2)nCH3 where n = 10-13].

I have no idea. I looked it up online, but i couldn't find anything.

    I didn't have any luck on the net either but I would think neither would be very soluble since both have some polarity. However, 1-hexanol should be less polar than ethanol, shouldn't it, therefore I would think the less polar solute would be more soluble in a non-polar solvent. And kerosene should be about as non-polar as they come.

    yes
