Answer:

Of course it depends on what sort of solution it is.

Explanation:

You know (or should know) the definition of a saturated solution (it's defined here in many places), and you know that #pH# #=# #-log_(10)[H_3O^+]#. So first you need #[H_3O^+]# of the solution.

If it were a saturated solution of #NaCl#, which possesses no acid base behaviour in water, can you quote #pH#?
