Question

Raj's father specifically asked him to water the plants near the ground as depicted in the image below. This is because



  1. Roots are the major sites for water absorption in plants.

  2. The base of the stem is specialized to absorb water and minerals.

  3. Water enters the stem through diffusion

  4. None of these


Solution

The correct option is A

Roots are the major sites for water absorption in plants.


Plants absorb water from the soil by osmosis. Root hair cells are adapted for this by having a large surface area to speed up osmosis. The absorbed water is transported through the roots to the rest of the plant where it is used for different purposes.
