Hmm. This might be tough.

Anyway, I'd guess that:
1 - convert 25cm3 into dm3 by dividing by 1000
2 - work out the percentage of chlorine that comprises silver chloride (AgCl)
3 - multiply the decimal by 17.885 to yield the mass of chlorine
4 - convert what you got for 3 to moles (divide by 35.5)
5 - divide what you got for 4 by what you got for 1

When I did this I got 6.62mol/dm3, but like I said, I'm not entirely sure. I still personally think that this is too complicated for a GCSE question
