The correct answer to this question is D. Fiber saturation point is used to denote the point in the drying process in wood that only water in the cell walls will remain. It is the minimum moisture content in equilibrium with a saturated atmosphere. It is the estimated point at which shrinkage begins.

It is also the estimated point at which a sudden increase occurs inthe compressive strength. Other water called free water is removed from the cell cavities. The fiber saturation point in respect to the moisture content in wood refers to the fact that no free water exists in cell cavities but cell walls and saturated.
