What is defined as the concentration of dissolved solute in a solvent beyond which none of it, if added to the solvent, will increase the concentration further more?

A. Solubility

B. Saturation point

C. Solvent capacitance

D. Molar equilibrium concentration

The question was posed to me in an interview for job.

The origin of the question is Solubility Solutions topic in portion Solutions of Chemistry – Class 12

Right option is A. Solubility

Explanation: Solubility is the maximum amount of solute that can be dissolved in a given solvent at a particular temperature and pressure. It is usually expressed in grams of solute dissolved in 100 grams of the solvent. Any more solute added beyond this forms a supersaturated solution as none of the particles dissolve any more.
