Ans: abc1. pdf

3rd from right picture depicts the correct answer.
Explanation : Both A and B has the similar molar solutions of 0.1M. For the preparation of molar solutions, one mole of solute is taken and solvent is added to make the volume 1 liter thereby solution of 1M is prepared. In the given question molecular weight ...

Solution Summary

Movement of solvent in osmosis depends upon the concentration of solvent in solution. Constitution of molar solution will determine the relative content of solvent which in turn will determine the direction of the flow accross the semi-permeable membrane.
