Solution

The correct option is A

A to B


The process depicted in the picture is osmosis.
Water will move from A (lower concentration of solute) to B (higher concentration of solute).
In turn, this movement will eliminate the difference of solute concentration in A and B which are separated by a semi-permeable membrane.
