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?

Have you ever seen an oil dissolving in a water? On the other hand, KI is very similar in its properties to sodium chloride - which is table salt. Now, use common reason to find the answer:)
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.
