Answer:

Quite possibly the reverse process occurs........

Explanation:

That is SOLVENT molecules, here water, dissolve SOLUTE molecules, and the SOLUTION becomes more concentrated with respect to SOLUTE.

When there is equilibrium between dissolved, and undissolved solute, i.e.

#"Undissolved solute "stackrel"solvent "rightleftharpoons" Dissolved solute"#

, a condition of #"SATURATION"# applies............

#"Supersaturation"# occurs when the solvent holds MORE SOLUTE than would be in equilibrium with undissolved solute.......
