Answer :

a) When the Tradescantia leaf epidermal peel was taken and placed in salt solution for five minutes, the cells would have shrinked when seen under the microscope because salt solution is hypertonic causing water to move out of the cell thus leading to exosmosis.

b) After that when it was placed in distilled water, the cell regains its turgidity as it absorbs water and deplasmolysis occurs.
