    You should think yourself first, we can't do homework for you.

    Which one do you think yourself will dissolve in water: oil or an salt (potassium iodine = KI). Do you know any properties of the molecules that causes this?

    And then find out the chemistry behind it. This will be found in your text, as well as in hundreds of places on the internet. Ask Google.
