Answer:

#"A solution......"#

Explanation:

And a binary solution consists of TWO components, #"the solvent"#, (generally the species in excess), and #"the solute"#. There are various ways to measure the concentration of solution; most commonly, we calculate the #"molarity"#.

#"Molarity"="Moles of solute"/"Volume of solution"#..with associated units of #mol*L^-1#...

..alternatively...#"Molality"="Moles of solute"/"kilograms of solvent"#..with associated units of #mol*kg^-1#...

..for dilute AQUEOUS solutions, #"molarity "-=" molality"#
