                The water potential and osmotic potential of pure water are:                                                        

    A)              100 and zero

    B)              zero and zero      

    C)              100 and 200      

    D)              zero and 100

    Correct Answer: B

    Solution :

                The term water potential indicates the net tendency of any system to donate water to its surroundings. The water potential of pure water at atmospheric pressure is zero. Any addition of solute to this water reduces it's water potential and makes it's value negative. The osmotic potential of pure water also would be zero.
