Is sawdust a soluble substance?
Most people think of something being soluble if it will dissolve in water. Sawdust doesn't dissolve in water. In general the cellulose and other structures that compose sawdust are not particularly soluble until they are broken down chemically - which is not really dissolving. Once they have been broken down, the resulting products can be dissolved - but at that point you aren't really dissolving sawdust anymore, you are dissolving the products of the chemical reactions that have broken down the sawdust.

What are the seven symbolic gifts for seventh birthday and their meanings?
Actually, there is not a list of "7 symbolic gifts" to give for a seventh birthday. It really depends on the child and his/her likes. For example, if a girl or boy likes the color yellow, a symbolic gift might be to get a gift that is yellow. Also, it would be symbolic to get the child 7 of something (an idea that is similar to the 7 candles on the cake). Speaking of cakes, you could decorate it with something that interests the child. The main goal of symbolic gifts is that they mean something special to the child.
