Expert Answer:

Isotonic solutions: If there are two solutions and the concentrations of solutes in both the solutions are same, then they are isotonic solution.

Hypertonic solutions and Hypotonic solutions: Consider, there are two solutions A and B.

When solution A has higher concentration of solute than solution B, then solution A is called hypertonic solution.

When solution A has lower concentration of solutes than solution B, then solution A is called hypotonic solution.
