    Answer:

    The larger pieces are still compounds and the smaller pieces are elements.

    Explanation:

    Compounds are a mixture of different elements. So, when we break in into smaller(fine powder) pieces we get the individual elements. While, the larger pieces are still compound (mixture of two or more elements).
