  6. Water is a polar molecule so it can go through the cell membrane but only by the openings/channels. So the answer is B and I also had this question on Study Island.

  9. The reason people are getting B & D is because Study Island changes answer order. Also, you shouldn't be posting Study Island Question online. You don't know who is giving you the answer, you should ask your teacher to explain if you don't understand.
