Molarity = moles of solute/volume of solution

You do not name the solute, so one can not calculate the moles.

Added:

From this, only the MASS concentration (g/L) can be calculated, 56 g / 0.959 L = 58.4 g/L

For the molar concentration (mol/L) one should divide that value by the molar mass of the compound (which is unknown in this question)
