Answer:

#"Unknown.................."#

Explanation:

#"Concentration" = "Moles of solute"/"Volume of solution"#

And thus #"moles of solute"="concentration"xx"volume"#

Now we know the volume, and the concentration of the weak acid, and thus (assuming a monoprotic acid) we can predict the stoichiometric quantity of sodium hydroxide with which it will react.

But we have no idea of the concentration of the sodium hydroxide solution........
