(B) Xylem -(4)Transport of water -Xylem functions as a conducting tissue for water and minerals from roots to the stem and leaves. It also provides mechanical strength to the plant parts.
(C) Root hairs -(1)Absorption of water -Root hairs are the thin hairlike outgrowth of an epidermal cell just behind the tip of the root; absorbs water and nutrients from the soil.
