Answer:

Well the cell contents are CLEARLY MORE CONCENTRATED than the surrounding solution....

Explanation:

...I think this is clear. The cell is #"hypertonic"# with respect to the medium...the prefixes follow the old Greek prefixes...

#"hyper "-=" more"#, #"hypo "-=" LESS"#, #"iso "-=" the same "#.

This is something you just need to know....
