Are these correct?

Cohesion=Water molecules stick to the side of a straw because of this attractive force.

Adhesion=Liquid mercury forms drops because of this attractive force

Polarity=This property of water enables salt to dissolve in water

Base=This is a substance that removes hydrogen ions from a solution.

Thanks
