Reading Comprehension: Detail Questions

Which definition of a supersaturated solution is supported by information in the passage?

Incorrect.

[[snippet]]

The passage states that a saturated, not supersaturated, solution is at equilibrium.

Incorrect.

[[snippet]]

The passage tells us that a supersaturated solution has more dissolved, not undissolved, solute than a saturated solution.

Incorrect.

[[snippet]]

The passage states that the amount of dissolved solute exceeds the amount of solute that a saturated solution has, which means that a supersaturated solution contains more, not less, solute.

Incorrect.

[[snippet]]

The passage only provides us with information about a supersaturated solution's relative amount of dissolved solute to a saturated solution. We do not have any information about whether a supersaturated solution has any undissolved solute in it.

Very good!
