Answer:

#"An aqueous solution..........."#

Explanation:

Aqueous solutions are quite remarkable. Most materials have some solubility in water. This site possibly has more details than you need.

When we write species as aquated ions, i.e. #Na^+(aq)# or #Cl^(-)(aq)#, as far as anyone knows we mean the aquated ions, complex ions if you like, #[Na(OH_2)_6]^+# or #[Cl(H_2O)_(4-6)]^-#.
