Solution

The correct option is C

Ψs will be negative and Ψp will be positive


A cell has many solutes in it and solute potential can either be negative or zero. Hence, even in a fully turgid cell, the solute potential (ψs) is negative. Because it is fully turgid, is exerts pressure outwards, which is the pressure potential (ψp), and it is positive.
