so that is taking a lower concentration to higher concentration
which one moves against the gradient?
diffusion moves from higher concentration to lower 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
Active transport moves against the concentration gradient
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 :)
