  3. Since the vapour pressure depends on surface area, therefore when the surface area is more,vapour pressure will be more. When we add solute,what we do is we decrease the vapour pressure of solvent because some of the salt ions will be present at the solvent surface,thus taking place of some of the solvent particles which were actively participating in maintaing that previous high value of vapour pressure.so the equlibrium vapour pressure value decreases.
