b) diffusion
c) active transport
d) osmosis
e) facilitated diffusion

This Question is Open

Nameless Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so that is taking a lower concentration to higher concentration

Yeah. I can't figure out whether it's B or E

Diffusion moved down the concentration gradient. you are looking for what moves up the concentration gradient.. from low to high.

thus it will expend energy

facilitated diffusion is a passive process that takes transport proteins to cross the membrane

Ohhh. I thought it meant the 2.0 was distributing to balance out the 1.0. So it's not diffusion...that's two answers down

and osmosis equalizes through the semipermiable membrane.

though it does move solutes from a low concentration to a high concentration. hope i Helped. good luck :)
