# What is a Hypotonic Solution?

Q) What is a hypotonic solution?

Answer:

A hypotonic solution is any solution that has a lower osmotic pressure than another solution. In biology, it generally refers to a solution that has less solute and more water than another solution.

A hypotonic solution is a solution that has a lower solute concentration compared to another solution. A solution cannot be hypotonic, isotonic or hypertonic without a solution for comparison.
