# In the phenomenon of osmosis through the semipermeable membrane

$\begin{array}{1 1} \text{solvent molecules pass from solution to solvent} \\\text{solvent molecules pass from solvent to solution } \\ \text{solute molecules pass from solution to solvent} \\ \text{solute molecules pass from solvent to solution}\end{array}$

A semipermeable membrane is any biological or synthetic membrane that allows certain molecules or ions to pass through while restricting others.
A semipermeable membrane has spaces between the solid portions of its structure that enable certain substances or molecules to pass through, but are designed to restrict others that are of a larger size.
The process of flow of solvents from the pure solvent to the solution through a semipermeable membrane is termed as osmosis.
Answer : solvent molecules pass from solvent to solution
