Yeah but was very rushed towards end, what did you put for the question about the glucose glycogen ratio? Found it bizzare as more glucose meant more water uptake but idk why?

Yeah it was poor, and well I think both are difficult purely bc some questions are so open ended and open to interpretation, but yea probably! Did you find some questions on this paper difficult to interpret just because there was so much writing?

hey I realised the answer to this right at the end haha, I think it was because glucose is transported around the body in water, which increases the cell mass as there is more substance. the reason that the cell mass decreases as there is more glycogen to glucose is because glycogen is insoluble so therefore as there is no water uptake = there is no increase in cell mass

hope this helps ) i could be wrong tbh lol
