Solution

The correct option is D

Saturated


In Dead Sea the quantity of salts present is quite high as compared to other seas and oceans. The amount of salt present is around 300g per litre of water. This means that about 30% of the Dead Sea is salt by weight which is ten times more than in the other seas and oceans. Therefore water in the Dead Sea is a saturated solution.
