## Question:

What term describes a solution in which the solute concentration exceeds its equilibrium concentration under the prevailing conditions?

(a) Hypotonic

(b) Hypertonic

(c) Isotonic

(d) Supersaturated

(e) Saturated

## Solution:-

It is a homogeneous mixture composed of two or more substances. The concentration of solution which is measure of amount of solute in a given amount of solution or solvent.

The correct option is d.

The option is supersaturated solution. It is a solution that contains more than maximum amount of solute is called as supersaturated solution.
