I don't have the 6th edition textbook so I don't know which problem you're talking about, but usually the cell diagram will include KOH (aq) if the reaction is taking place in a basic solution. So it basically just means that OH- is present in the solution and is part of the electron transfer or is needed to balance the reaction taking place.
