The correct answer is (2) Side B.
The concentration of both the solutions is same but solution containing sucrose is hypotonic as it will not dissociate in the solution whereas solution containing NaCl is hypertonic as it will dissociate to give Na+ and Cl-

When different, the solution that is hypotonic (diluted solution, less solutes more water) will have higher osmotic potential (less negative ψπ ) whereas the solution that is hypertonic (concentrated solution, more solutes less water) will have lower osmotic potential (more negative ψπ). Difference in osmotic potentials will cause water molecules to move from a hypotonic solution to a hypertonic solution.
