It is a planning and designing experiment to prove that crude oil can be separated into most of its components using fractional distillation in a laboratory use a fractionating column, Bunsen burner and a condenser.

I want to know what fraction of crude oil would distill off.

Hello sassenav,so you know that in principle most(if not all) of the fractions can be separated in the laboratory.Are you asking for the names of the fractions.Here's some going from smallest to biggest:refinery gases, petrol,paraffin, diesel,bitumen.You can get fuller details by googling.
