considering the polarity of each compound and that of a solvent in which it is dissolved (including the potential for hydrogen bonding), give a brief explanation of each result:

a) biphenyl in hexane
- which is also soluble

b) biphenyl in methyl alcohol
- which is more soluble

please help.... i don't know how explain the reactions other then the solubilities
