A cell will plasmolysis , if it is placed in _____________.
In a hypertonic solution, the water molecules will move from outside the cell to inside.
Plasmolysis will occur when the cell is placed in a
(a) hypotonic solution
(b) isotonic solution
(c) hypertonic solution
(d) acidic solution
Assertion :A plant cell shrinks in hypertonic solution. Reason: In hypertonic solution, water moves out of the cells due to plasmolysis.
Assertion :Shrinkage of the protoplast of a cell occurs under the influence of hypertonic solution. Reason: Hypertonic solution causes plasmolysis.
