Answer

False

Work Step by Step

Transporters as well as channels get saturated at high solute concentrations. As the molecules travel through the channel, they have to shed all the water molecules associated with them . This requirement monitors the rate of ion exchange through the channels. Thus, initially the rate will be high and will increase with increase in the number of ions but later saturates at the maximum rate. Therefore, channels will also get saturated like wise transporters. Hence, the given statement is false
