I don't understand them
Turgid, flaccid and plasmolysis all link to how osmosis works in a plant cell.
As water moves into the plant cells by osmosis, the pressure inside the cell increases and the cell becomes turgid (rigid).
If water is in short supply, cells will start to lose water by osmosis and become flaccid (not rigid).
When cells lose a lot of water, the inside of the cell contracts.
I hope I've helped. And good luck in all your exams! :)
