A freshwater plant is placed in a container of saltwater. What will most likely happen to the cells of the plant?
A They will swell because water will move into them.
B They will swell because salt will move into them.
C They will shrink because water will move out of them.
D They will shrink because salt will move out of them.



Letter C because water always goes from a high concentration to a low concentration and in this case, the freshwater plant contains more water than the container of saltwater thus, as water goes out from the freshwater plant, the plant shrinks.
