Colourless and clear

A notice behind a coloured (but clear!) solution

The difference between these two terms is a frequent cause of lost marks in assessment. Students often say clear when they mean colourless. Clear simply means something is transparent - you can see through it! A stained glass window is clear, but definitely not colourless. If you mean that something looks like water, use the correct term - colourless.
