In 0.1 M HCl solution you have 0.1 mol per 1000 ml of solution.

Therefore number of moles per ml = 0.1 mol / 1000 mL

                                                 =0.0001 mol/ mL

Molar weight of HCl                      = 36.5 g per mol

Therefore weight of HCl in 1 mL    = 0.0001 mol/mL x 36.5 g/mol

                                                 = 0.00365 g /mL

So it is false.

But 1 L of solution contains 3.65 g of Hcl.
