    @YK.PAPI Reverse osmosis involves removing large particles from water as a means of purification. Osmosis also deals with the movement of liquids to reduce/ increase the concentration of a solution. @Anaya13 Osmosis involves the movement of liquids/water, and while it involves movement from an area of low to high concentration, it does not require applied energy, Mitosis is the division of cells. Diffusion involves movement from high areas of concentration to low concentration, it does not require energy. Active transport involves moving molecules/materials/etc from an area of high concentration, to an area of low concentration, it also requires energy. Therefore the answer is D.
