    Answer: Option B) Yes, the solution is hypotonic, causing the cell to burst.

    Explanation:

    Because a hypotonic solution is of lower concentration to its surrounding, a cell placed in such solution absorbs the content of the solution, swells and then burst due to the uncontrolled inflow of the solution through its cell membrane.

    Thus, the answer is Yes, the solution is hypotonic and cause the cell to burst.
