S1. Ans.(d)
Sol. Transpiration is the process of elimination water in the form of water vapor from the aerial parts such as leaves, flowers and stem. The leaves contain tiny pores called stoma which helps in the gas exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide. More the stoma (pores) on the leaves result in the increase in the transpiration via stomata. When stomata are open, transpiration rates increase; when they are closed, transpiration rates decrease.

S2. Ans.(c)
Sol. Water always moves from area of high water potential to area of low water potential, i.e from less negative to more negative. During water absorption by root hair the water movement is possible if water potential of vacuolar sap is lower than root hair water potential.

S3. Ans.(d)
Sol. Tracheids differ in many ways from vessels:- Tracheids have narrow lumen while vessels lumen is wide.
Tracheids have less number of large pits while vessels have a large number of small pits.
Tracheids are imperforated while vessels are perforated.
Tracheids have tapering ends while vessels have diagonal or transverse end walls.
Tracheids have thin walls while vessels have a thick cell wall.

S4. Ans.(a)
Sol. Imbibition is the process of adsorption of water by the solid surface like colloids. It causes an increase in the volume of the colloid.

S5. Ans.(b)
Sol. Stomatal opening is affected by carbon dioxide concentration light and temperature. Increase in the temperature causes stomata to open. Low CO2 concentration induces stomatal opening and vice versa. Stomata open in the presence of light and close in darkness.

S6. Ans.(a)
Sol. Root hairs contain cell sap of a higher concentration than that of the surrounding soil water. Hence, Water absorption by root hairs occurs until the Concentration of water in the cell sap is higher.

S7. Ans.(d)
Sol. The movement of the molecules of gases, liquids and solutes from the region of higher concentration to the region of lower concentration is known as diffusion.
Osmosis is special type of diffusion of a liquid, when solvent moves through a semipermeable membrane from a place of higher diffusion pressure to a place of lower diffusion pressure.
The shrinkage of the protoplast of a living cell from its cell wall due to exosmosis under the influence of a hypertonic solution is called plasmolysis.
The process of adsorption of water by solid particles of a substance without forming a solution is called imbibition.

S8. Ans.(c)
Sol. Xerophytic plants have stomata on lower side only to check transpiration.

S9. Ans.(c)
Sol. Guttation is the loss of water in the form of water droplets.
S10. Ans.(d)
Sol. Transpiration is unavoidable evil because of gaseous exchange for photosynthesis and respiration.
