A group of students set up an experiment to investigate a certain physiological process as shown in the figure below. After some time, the students observed that the level of the sugar solution had risen.
- What physiological process was being investigated?
- Account for the rise in the sugar solution in the experiment.
- Suggest with a reason the results that the students would obtain if they repeated the experiment using a piece of boiled potato.
- Explain why the cells of the potato above, would not burst when immersed in distilled water and left for some time.
