  1. Your question makes no sense grammatically. You can't use the word "is" twice.

    Also, recyustalization is not a word.

  2. What you may mean is to ask if crude benzoic acid has a higher or lower melting point than recrystallized benzoic acid. The purer benzoic acid has a higher melting point than impure benzoic acid.
