We are being asked to identify whether the solutions are saturated, unsaturated or supersaturated

Recall that

• Saturated solution: solutes dissolve in the solvent until it reaches the amount that the solvent can dissolve so excess solutes undissolved
• Unsaturated solution: solutes dissolved in the solvent is less than the amount the solvent can dissolve
• Supersaturated solution: solutes dissolved in the solvent is more than the amount the solvent can dissolve
