Solution

The correct option is C Osmotic concentration of xylem sap.
Active absorption is the movement of water molecule along the gradient with the use of energy.
Osmotic pressure is the movement of a solute particle from low concentration to high concentration through a semi-permeable membrane.
So, the water will move from a higher concentration to a lower concentration.
So, the correct option is 'Osmotic concentration of xylem sap'.
