A saturated solution.

Equilibrium is only found in a saturated solution, where the dissolved species and the undissolved species are in equilibrium with each other. In a dilute solution there is nothing that is undissolved, and so there is no equilibrium, and by definition a supersaturated solution is out of equilibrium and essentially has too much stuff dissolved in it (it will eventually return to equilibrium and some of the dissolved material will precipitate out).

A saturated solution has a solute that is at its maximum concentration. At this point, no more solute can be dissolved at the current temperature. The dissolved and undissolved solutes are at equilibrium in the saturated solution.

no, we cannot dissolve more sugar in saturated solution and if we add more sugar so there is a dynamic equilibrium between the dissolved and undissolved sugar

A salt water solution is considered saturated when no more salt can be dissolved in the water and there is no undissolved salt in the solution; so it is at the highest capacity of salt that can be dissolved in the amount of water present.

the amount of solute that has dissolved is equal to the amount of solute that has not dissolved yet
