    1.A cell will swell up if
    The concentration of water molecules in the surrounding medium is higher than the concentration of water molecules in the cell
    The concentration of water molecules does not matter

    3.Osmosis is a process by which molecules of a solvent tend to pass through a semipermeable membrane from a less concentrated solution into a more concentrated one. Can you pick out the option among the following which does not belong to this process?
    Plasma membranes contain chitin sugar in plants.
    The movement of water across a semipermeable membrane is affected by the amount of substances dissolved in it.
    Molecules soluble in organic solvents can easily pass through the membrane.
    Membranes are made of organic molecules such as proteins and lipids.
