Why do seeds need water to germinate?

(1) Following hydration, enzymes break down stored food and make it available for the embryo.

(2) Water provides energy.

(3) Water activates the chlorophyll molecules so that photosynthesis can begin.

(4) Water dissolves the minerals in the soil so that they become available to the seed.
