Solution

The correct option is B Greater exposure for gaseous exchange
The most prevalent live plant tissue is parenchyma. They have a larger number of intracellular gaps, thin cell walls, and big vacuoles. The storage of food and water is the primary function of the parenchyma cells of the roots and stem. Gaseous exchange is aided by the intercellular air gaps.
