  1. It depends. If they have different properties such as one being magnetic (as in iron) and another not magnetic they can be separated that way. If they are large pieces and colored they can be separated by picking out the different colors. If they have different solubilities in different solvent they can be separated that way. If you want more definitive answers than that you will need to provide a specific question.
