What will happen when we put onion peel and RBCs seperately in hypotonic solution

2
Oh! what do you think - same answer or different answers ?
I've seen those answers now. Both of them convey the same concept.
but the cell of onion have cell wall due to which there will be no change in shape of cell
yes! I agree.
I'm deleting that question. This one seems better!

Hypotonic solutions are the solutions with lesser solute concentration and with higher water potential.
Water always moves from higher water potential region to lower water potential region.

In this case, 
higher water potential region - hypotonic solution
lowe water potential region - onion peel and RBCs

So, the water from the hypotonic solution moves into onion peel and RBCs(separately).
This process is called endosmosis.

Since, onion peel cells possess cell wall, they resist the hydrostatic pressure created by the  water entering into the cell. So, they just turn turgid and maintain a rigid shape but do not burst.
While, the RBCs have no cell wall and can't resist the pressure created by the water entering in. So, they bulge and bulge and finally burst.
