20. 100 ml of water at room temperature of 25°C is taken in a beaker and a little of solid S is 
dissolved in it by stirring to obtain a solution X. More of solid S is added to the solution 
with constant stirring while keeping the temperature of the solution constant at 30°C. 
After some time, it is observed that no more solid dissolves in water, and at the same time, 
some solid is also left undissolved at the bottom of the beaker. The contents of the beaker 
are filtered through a filter paper to obtain solution Y in the form of a filtrate.  (5)
