A:

Kindly post one query at a time.

Answer for your first query.

A hypertonic solution means there is more salt in the solution or external environment than within the red blood cells.

When red blood cells are placed in a hypertonic solution, water within the cells move out via osmosis into the surrounding solution, causing the red blood cells to shrink and shrivel.
