Solution

The correct option is A

Connective tissue


The xylem and phloem are two conducting tissues present in plants. Xylem conducts minerals and water only in the upward direction i.e. from the roots towards the stem. The phloem transports food material from leaves to other parts of the plant body. It can conduct food in both directions.
