Plant cells do not burst in distilled water because (a) Cell wall is elastic, rigid, and gets stretched (c) Cell wall is the outermost layer in plant cell (b) Cell wall is living (d) Cell wall is permeable..

Dear student,
Answer is a) cell wall is elastic, rigid and gets stretched
As the plant cell is placed in distilled water then the movement of water occurs inside the cell by osmosis, the cell becomes turgid. The pressure exerted by the cell wall prevents the cell from bursting.
