Answer :

(i) When eukaryotic cells are placed in hypotonic solution (dilute solution), water molecules will enter into the cell and the cell will swell up due to endosmosis.

(ii) When eukaryotic cells are placed in hypertonic solution (concentrated solution), water molecules will move out of the cell and the cell will shrink due to exosmosis.


(iii) When eukaryotic cells are placed in isotonic solution, the water molecule will neither move out or will not go inside, hence the amount of water molecule remain the same. The cell will remain same.
