OF course i can but i don't want to, becuase a straight answer won't help your knowledge of biology, it will just help you do your homework.
This is a pretty basic question, and if you read about osmosis you will undestand it and answer it yourself

Okay, this is my first time ever writing in this forum... I hope this helps, I don't know if you have already turned in the HW or not, but here goes. (I love this forum! It is completely bevoted to BIO!!)

I think the jellyfish [kind of] lysed, like a cell does when it takes in too much water. uhhh the water tried balaced with the % of salt in the jellyfish... I hope this helped a bit!
