Solution

The correct options are
A

It prepares its own food


D

It takes only water and minerals from the roots of other plants


During the initial stages of growth, a sandalwood tree takes water and minerals from the roots of other plants. They are root parasites which photosynthesize their own food but depend on the roots of other species for water and inorganic nutrients. The absence of root hairs combined with the fact that the root of this plant grows around anything from a pebble to its own roots have been considered as a reason for this.
