Remember the distinction between concentration and solubility. Concentration is measured in grams of solute per 100 mL of solution (g/100 mL solution), but solubility is measured in grams of solute per 100 mL of solvent(g/100 mL solvent). Different solutes have different solubility's, as Table 1 shows.

When is a concentrated solution an unsaturated solution at the same time?

Concentration is measured in moles per litre. Saturation (a variant of solubility) is measured in grams of solute per hundred grams of solution. NB It is temperature dependant. It is possible to saturate a solution by dissolving as much solute as possible in 100 grams of water (or whatever solvent you want to use), discarding the undissolved solute at that temperature...and measuring the concentration using titrimetric methods. Concentration and solubility are distinct and different parameters of solutions...

What is the method for sugar dissoving into water?

Solubility is the property of a solid, liquid, or gaseous chemical substance called solute to dissolve in a solid, liquid, or gaseous solvent to form a homogeneous solution of the solute in the solvent. The solubility of a substance fundamentally depends on the used solvent as well as on temperature and pressure. The extent of the solubility of a substance in a specific solvent is measured as the saturation concentration where adding more solute does not increase the concentration of the solution.
