In the setup shown in the image, the left and right tubes are separated by a semi-permeable membrane that allows water to pass through but not sugar. Thus, modifications in solute concentration causes water to diffuse across the membrane.
If more sugar were added to the solution on the elft side of the tube, what would happen to the water level on the right side of the tube?
A. The water level would go down
B. The water level would rise
C. The water level would stay the same
