Is benzene and water miscible?

No.  All hydrocarbons are not miscible with water.  These include alkanes like hexane and decane, cycloalkanes like cyclohexane, aromatics like benzene, toluene, and xylene, branched alkanes like 2,2,4-trimethylpentane, and alkenes and alkynes.

No. Only tiny amounts of benzene can be dissolved in water or vice versa.
