Question

Which of the following statements is incorrect?

  1. In a hypotonic solution, the cell burst or enlarges.
  2. In a hypertonic solution, the cell shrinks.
  3. In an isotonic solution, the cell changes its shape.
  4. None of the above

Hint:

The cell becomes enlarged when it is kept in a hypotonic solution and shrinks in a hypotonic solution.

The correct answer is: None of the above


    • When a cell is kept in a hypertonic solution, the water inside the cell is diffused out to the solution and it shrinks.
    • In a hypotonic solution, the water is derived into the cell and it becomes enlarged and bursts.
    • The shape of the cell changes when it is kept in an isotonic solution.
