To figure out whether a substance is an element or a compound, you need to observe whether substance has one individual chemica like sulphur, or hydrgen, etc. Everything that contains in periodic table are elements.
Whereas, compound is a combination of two or more elements. E.g. H2O (this is combination of hydrogen and oxygen elements).
So basically, look at periodic table. It contains all elements.
