Dear student 
Methanol and acetone can be separated by the mixture of simple distillation .
Simple distillation is a procedure by which two liquids with different boiling points can be separated. Simple distillation (the procedure outlined below) can be used effectively to separate liquids that have at least fifty degrees difference in their boiling points.

Fractional distillation is employed for a separating mixture of two or more volatile liquids having boiling points close to each other. Acetone has a boiling point 60 C, whereas methanol has a boiling point of 65 C. Hence, it can be separated by fractional distillation.
