Magnetism is a physical property that is mediated by magnetic fields.

The magnetic state of a material depends on temperature (and other variables, such as pressure and the applied magnetic field), so a material may exhibit more than one form of magnetism depending on its temperature, etc. However, a material's magnetism doesn't change the composition, and doesn't involve a chemical reaction.

There's not really any changes that are going on when a magnet attracts/repels another magnet. But magnetism is a physical property because when an object becomes a magnet, it is still has the same chemical composition.

Magnetic quality is a physical attribute. If the quality of the magnet is changeing due to time and/or use, it is physical. If it is changeing becasue it was cropped in acid, thenits chemical.

How can a mixture be separated in a chemical change?

A mixture cannot be separated with chemical change because a mixture is two or more substances which will retain their physical properties when combined. Mixtures are separated by physical means like filters, sifting, chromatography, centrifuge, electrophoresis and magnetic attraction depending on what the mixture is composed of.
