Correct Answer - Option 1 : B

The correct answer is Osmosis dilutes fish body fluids.

  • The fish can't survive in distilled water because osmosis dilutes fish body fluids.
  • Distilled water is a type of purified water.
  • The water that has been boiled into vapor and condensed back into liquid in a separate container is called distilled water.
  • Distilled water doesn't have enough oxygen for the fish to breathe.
  •  Micronutrients like salts and minerals are very essential for the fish to survive but distilled water lacks these micronutrients.
