D
From Y to X, increasing the concentration gradient of sucrose

Solution

The correct option is A From X to Y, decreasing the concentration gradient of sucrose
Most water molecular move from x to y decreasing the concentration gradient of sucrose. The solution will always move down the concentration gradient. 
This means the water always move from this is more water to where there is less water.
Therefore, water will move from a hypotonic solution to the hypertonic solution.
