Quiz: Biology Tonicity Practice Test

Quiz: biology tonicity practice test. Osmosis, in simple terms, is the movement of solvents from a higher solute concentration to the less one through a semipermeable membrane. In the quiz below, you will get to test your understanding of different tonic solutions and how a solute is transferred. How about you try it out and see what you may learn about osmosis as a whole.
