The rupture and fractionation do not usually occur in the water column in vessel/tracheids during the ascent of sap because of

1. lignified thick walls

2. cohesion and adhesion

3. weak gravitational pull

4. transpiration pull

Please attempt this question first.

Difficulty Level:


Two cells A and B are contiguous. Cell A has osmotic pressure 10 atm, turgor pressure-7

atm and diffusion pressure deficit 3 atm. Cell B has osmotic pressure 8 atm, turgor

pressure 3 atm and diffusion pressure deficit 5 atm. The result will be

1. Movement of water from cell B to A

2. No movernent of water

3. Equilibrium between the two

4. Movement of water from cell A to B

Transpiration is very important for plants because it helps in 

1. the absorption of water from soil

2. the cooling of leaves at high temperature

3. the movement of water and minerals absorbed by roots to various parts of the plant
