A
Capillary water
loader
B
Hygroscopic water
loader
C
Gravitational water
loader
D
Chemically bound water
loader

Solution

The correct option is B Capillary water
  • Capillary water is present in the capillary spaces and this water is easily available to plant roots. 
  • Hygroscopic water is present as a thin film around soil particles and is not available to plant roots. 
  • Gravitational water is the water that seeps down to the water table under the influence of gravity.
  • Chemically bound water is the water present in minerals and chemical compounds as their constituent.
  • Both gravitational and chemically bound water is not available to plants.

So, the correct answer is 'Capillary water'.
