Question

In the absence of moisture, seeds will dry up. What will happen to the rate of respiration?


  1. Remains the same.

  2. May either increase or decrease

  3. Decreases

  4. Increases


Solution

The correct option is C

Decreases


To fulfil the high-energy needs of a germinating seedling, cellular respiration increases as a seed emerges from dormancy and begins germinating.  However, seeds respire at a lower rate throughout dormancy.
