Select the correct answer from each drop-down menu. compared to its surroundings, the concentration of solutes is low inside a cell. so, the cell is with respect to its surroundings. a particular solute in this cell uses energy for its transport from the cell to its surroundings. this type of transport is called
When the concentration of a certain solute is low inside the cell with respect to the cell's external environment, then the cell performs active transport of the solute from the cytoplasm with a low concentration of solute within the cell to the cell's external with a high concentration of the solute. This process of active transport requires the need of energy in the form of ATP to drive the pumps that are present on its cell membrane.
an ion is a charged atom or molecule. it is charged because the number of electrons do not equal the number of protons in the atom or molecule. an atom can acquire a positive charge or a negative charge depending on whether the number of electrons in an atom is greater or less then the number of protons in the atom.
whichever one it is, it's definitely not one that you included on the list you provided.
