B
False

Solution

The correct option is B False
Osmosis examples are mostly seen with water as water is the most abundant solvent, but osmosis is possible with any solvent, even gases. The most important factor is the semi-permeable membrane.
The type of solvent doesn't matter to a significant extent unless it corrodes or reacts with the membrane which is not the case in most circumstances.
All we need for osmosis to happen between 2 solutions is a certain type of molecule to pass through and certain types to be restricted.
