    Hi,

    I'd say #1 is correct. #2 should be 'Water permeates the skin of amphibians' to mean what yoou intended.

    PS: Something other is whether the sentences are true or false, I'm no expert on amphibians.

    1) The skin of amphibians is permeable to water.
    2) .. as charlie said, or "Water can permeate the skin of amphibians".
