Your Answer
B
Plants living in deserts
Your Answer
C
Aquatic plants with floating leaves
Your Answer
D
Plants growing in hilly regions

Solution

The correct option is A Aquatic, submerged plants

The loss of water from aerial parts of living plants is known as transpiration. Transpiration may be stomatal  (80-90%), cuticular (3-9%) and lenticular (0.1%). Transpiration is absent in submerged hydrophytic plants because the stomata are completely absent in the leaves of the submerged plants, e.g Anacharis and Potamogeton.
