What is patient''s plasma osmolarity after the infusion, Biology

Tina administered 1 liter of sterile distilled water IV to a patient. Predict the direction (increase, decrease, no change) you would expect Tina's infusion to have produced in these parameters, and explain your predictions. Assume that red blood cells contain only solutes to which the rbc membrane is impermeable and that rbcs and plasma are in osmotic equilibrium when patient is brought in. The osmolarity of the rbc is 300 mOsm/L What is the patient's plasma osmolarity after the infusion and why?
