Answer:

Well, most perchlorates are soluble...

Explanation:

...and most sodium salts are soluble...and so what is the only goer?

On the other hand, barium phosphate (which is likely #BaHPO_4(s)# in an aqueous medium), and silver iodide are both as soluble as bricks. Silver iodide precipitates from aqueous solution as a yellow solid, which is not quite so curdy (i.e. finely divided) as #AgCl#. Calcium sulfate is moderately insoluble....
