What is the difference between plasmolysis and osmosis?

answer in tabular form please

Osmosis

Plasmolysis

Osmosis is the phenomenon when the two solutions having different osmotic concentration are separated by a semi- permeable membrane and the movement of solvent takes place from a region of low concentration of the solute to a region where there is high concentration of the solute (or from a region where there is high concentration of solvent to a region where there is low concentration of solvent).

When cell is placed in a hypertonic solution water moves out, first from cytoplasm and then from vacuole. Cell membrane shrinks away from the cell wall. This is known as plasmolysis.
