    Then I think it depends on the particular reaction, and you may just have to learn whether it's meant to aqueous or not (from the internet or textbook).

    Doing A levels?

    If the question hints at an acidic or alkaline solution, or if there's something to do with electrodes in there, it's aqueous.

    If there's X.xx moldm-3 in there, it's aqueous.

    Or if it's really freaking obvious that it's going to be aqueous (E.G, you're not going to be reacting HCl(g) in your test tubes.)

    I think I covered everything~
