ccl4 will dissolve better in water because likes dissolves likes, H2O is non-polar an CCL4 is also non polar where as ch2cl2 is polar(different to water) there for it wont dissolve in water but CCL4 will

^^This is not true: water is polar. Therefore, since CCl4 is non-polar, and CH2Cl2 is polar, and like dissolves like, CH2Cl2 is more soluble.
