    For example if you are doing an experiment in class and you are give substances in a bag and they ask you what do you think is in bag, is it an element or compound?

The elements in any compound are always present in fixed ratios. A chemical element (or element) is a chemical substance consisting of atoms having the same number of protons in their atomic nuclei.
