Solution

The correct option is B Dissolves chlorophyll present in the plant.
If alcohol is poured on a plant continuously for a long time, the plant could not prepare food on its own, the alcohol dissolves chlorophyll present in the plant. Chlorophyll is a pigment present in plants which help in absorbing sunlight required for photosynthesis. The destruction of the pigment causes failure in the absorption of sunlight. This causes yellowing and wilting of leaves.
So, the correct answer is option D.
