#### Explanation:

To solve this, let's look at a **solubility curve graph**:

The curve for

The question says there are

#color(red)(30color(white)(l)"g") - 20color(white)(l)"g" = color(blue)(ulbar(|stackrel(" ")(" "10color(white)(l)"g KClO"_3" ")|)#

can further dissolve before the solution is *saturated*.
