Solution

The correct option is B transport of substances through xylem and phloem over long distances
Translocation is the movement of substances over long distances through the vascular tissues (xylem and phloem) .
The substances transported through vascular tissues are water, minerals, photosynthates (food) and plant hormones.
Ascent of water is upward movement of water through xylem against the gravitational force.
The loss of water from aerial parts of plants through stomata in the form of water vapour is called transpiration.
