Solution

The correct option is C dicot root
Cuticle forms the outer protective covering of aerial parts of the plant body like stems and leaves. The cuticle is a waxy layer and is impermeable to water and thus helps in preventing the loss of water from the plant body. The cuticle is absent in the roots to facilitate the entry of water into the root.
