Symplastic movement is slower than apoplastic movement

(1) Because it involves cytoplasmic streaming always

(2) Molecule has to enter through the cell membrane

(3) Because it is down the gradient

(4) All of these

Difficulty Level:


Most of the movement in roots through apoplast is due to

(1) Cortical cells are loosely packed and hence no resistance to water movement

(2) Endodermal cells are loosely packed and hence no resistance to water movement

(3) Pericycle cells are loosely packed and hence no resistance to water movement

(4) Medullary cells are loosely packed and hence no resistance to water movement

Mycorrhiza

Find the incorrect statement.

(1) Symbiotic association of fungus with root system

(2) Fungal hyphae have a very large surface area that absorb mineral ions and water from the soil

(3) Hyphae can go to downwards in depth and cause absorption of much larger volume of soil that perhaps a root cannot do

(4) Roots provide sugar and S containing compounds to the mycorrhizae
