Expert Answer:

ppm is equivalent to part per million by weight.i.e by level of contamination is 15 ppm we mean that if 1 kg of water s taken then content of CHCl3 is 15 × 10-6 kg.

Now no. of moles of CHCl3 = 15 × 10-3 /119.5=n(let)

then molality = n/(1-15 × 10-6

Putting the value of n we get the molality of chloroform in  solution.
