    Solution:

    Fluid mosaic model states that plasma membrane has phospholipids arranged as bilayer in which the proteins are embedded either completely or partially or present on the surface. The sugars or oligosaccharides are bound to either proteins (glycoproteins) or lipids (glycolipids) only at the outer surface.
