Explain the Properties of cohesion and adhesion?

The properties are: Cohesion is the attraction between molecules of the same substance. Adhesion is the attraction between molecules of different substances.

An example of cohesion is how you can cause water to extend out over the rim of a glass if you fill it carefully; the molecules are all pulling together.

An example of adhesion is when you dip a piece of paper towel into a glass of water. The water will climb up the fibers of the paper above the level of the water in the glass. The water is attracted to the paper.
