    Physical changes are changes affecting the form of a chemical substance, but not its chemical composition. A is out cuz burning is not the only method to change it's physical stae. B is wrong cuz physical changes are seen ! Only the chemical changes aren't seen C is wrong cuz they do change their identity. Ex: When heat water u get vapor right? LIke wise it changes. So the answer would be D

    Physical change would not change identity of a substance. A chemical change is the one that changes the identity. Ice, water, and water vapor all consist of water molecules. A chemical change would change identity of a substance whether it is a different molecule, flammability, electronegativity, and even including the physical properties too.
