we have a alkaline solution with Cl content of 3500 ppm, and pH=10 ,my question is if the carbon steel material is proper for this solution or not?

It depends on how long you want it to last to decide if it is "proper". Generally the solution sounds like seawater ( although seawater pH is around 8 +).Corrosion will be strongly affected by factors not presented: oxygen, velocity, temperature, etc.As a wild guess a corrosion rate of one millimeter per year is possible.
