The solutions in the arms of a U-tube are separated at the bottom of the tube by a selectively permeable membrane. The
membrane is permeable to sodium chloride but not to glucose. Side A is filled with a solution of 0.4 M glucose and 0.5 M
sodium chloride (NaCl), and side B is filled with a solution containing 0.8 M glucose and 0.4 M sodium chloride. Initially,
the volume in both arms is the same. Refer to the figure to answer the following questions.
A) side A is hypertonic to side B.
B) side A is hypotonic to side B.
C) side A is hypertonic to side B with respect to glucose.
D) side A is hypotonic to side B with respect to sodium chloride.
E) side A is isotonic to side B.
