Solution

The correct option is B roots
  • Roots help in holding the plant firmly in the soil. They help plants to absorb water and minerals from the soil, which are essential for their survival.
  • In some plants, these roots are modified to perform various other functions like reproduction and food storage. For example, carrot and turnip are modified forms of roots to store food.
