Answer:$120\; gm$
Two solutions having same osmotic pressure are consider isotonic. $\pi_1 = \pi_2$ (at same temperature)
If $\pi_1 = \pi_2 \rightarrow C_1RT = C_2RT \rightarrow C_1 = C_2 \rightarrow n_1 = n_2$ where n is the number of moles of solute, $n = \large\frac{w}{M}$
$\Rightarrow \large\frac{2 \%}{M_X} $$ = \large\frac{1\%}{60}$$ \rightarrow M_X = 120\; gm$
