Does a larger extent of hydration mean a stronger intermolecular attraction?

Yes, since hydration is an example of ion-dipole interactions. If there is a larger extent of hydration, this means that the cation is strongly interacting with H2O's Oxygen's partial negative charge.

I get what the post above is saying, but what does "extent of hydration" mean? Is it like how many H2O molecules the ion attracts?
