Solution

The correct option is A Root hair

  • The root system is in contact with the soil where most of the water is found. 
  • The root system is usually extensive and has root hairs that help increase the surface area for water absorption. 
  • Water enters the root hair cells and then moves from cell to cell till it reaches the root cortex it goes on to the xylem vessels to be transported to the leaves.

So, the correct option is 'Root hair'.
