Of these, C6H12O6 is organic because it has carbon (C) in it. NaCl, HCl and H2O are inorganic.

Sodium chloride is an inorganic salt.

there are many inorganic salts. NaCl, KCl, CaCl2 compounds contain carbon and hydrogen

Sodium chloride (NaCl). In general, organic compounds are any compound containing carbon. All other compounds are considered inorganic.

Salt (Sodium Chloride, NaCl) is an inorganic compound. The classification of an organic compound is that it is a molecule that contains a carbon atom. Everything else can be considered inorganic. Some molecules that contain carbon are also inorganic such as carbon dioxide or calcium carbonate.

Inorganic, as it does not contain carbon. There are some carbon containing compounds that are considered inorganic (exceptions to every rule right?), but if it doesn't contain carbon at all then you can bet that it's inorganic.

No, carbohydrates are a class of organic, covalent compounds made of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. NaCl is an inorganic ionic compound made of sodium and chlorine.

CH4 (methane) is organic molecule. Rest : H2O, NaCl and NaOH are inorganic

There is no such thing as NaC1 in chemistry. However NaCl (with a lowercase letter L) is an inorganic compound.

could be inorganic or organic

Sodium chloride is NaCl, an inorganic salt. Camphor is C10H16O, an organic compound, a terpenoid..

It can be organic or inorganic.

"Organic" molecules are ones that contain carbon, which NaCl does not. NaCl is not an organic molecule.

Usually it is inorganic but there are circumstances where it can be organic.

they are both organic and inorganic

Inorganic. If it was organic it would have to have a Carbon in it.

organic materials dissolve in organic solvents inorganic materials dissolve in inorganic solvents

inorganic solids are mostly disolve able in water but the organic like benzene never ever dissolves in water similarly boiling points of in organic like NaCl are high as compared to organic example ether and petrol also gasoline

I would say generally that ionic bonds hold inorganic compounds together because the definition of an organic compound is a carbon based compound, with few exceptions ( CO2, for one ). NaCl -----------inorganic and ionic C6H12O6 ---------------organic and covalently bonded Na2CO3 ----------------an ionically bonded inorganic compound, but the CO3 2-, carbonate, is polyatomic, covalently bonded internally and inorganic
