Since every normal state (every state in which sugar dissolves) can be paired with a state in which it “undissolves,” we see that there are infinitely many physically possible conditions in which sugar “undissolves” instead of staying in solution. Of course, these are all states in which entropy decreases; but that is not impossible, only extremely improbable!
