D. net movement of water from an area of high solute concentration to one of low solute concentration.

2. What would happen if the membrane allowed the free movement of the sucrose molecules as well? A. Osmosis would still occur.
B. Osmosis would not occur.
C. The sucrose molecules would still stay on the right side of the membrane.
D. Eventually, all the water molecules would move to the right side of the membrane.

3. Solute and water concentration are inversely related. In other words, the higher the concentration of solute, the lower the concentration of water. Why? A. Water is essential for dissolving the solutes. The more solutes, the more water that is required.
B. Water and solutes repel each other.
C. The solute molecules take up space which could be filled with water molecules.
