Solution

The correct option is C Osmosis
Movement of solvent or water molecules from a high concentration region to a low concentration region through a semipermeable membrane is called osmosis. ​

This process is carried out till an equilibrium is reached. It is the passive movement of water or any other solvent molecules.
