Pick the incorrect statement

1. Guard cells help balance the photosynthesis-transpiration compromise.

2. Water tension in a transpiring plant will exert a pull on water molecules lower down in the plant's vascular system.

3. Plants that live in deserts have adapted to constant water stress by using hydrophilic colloids to increase the water potential of their tissues.

4. C3 plants can fix double the carbon dioxide for half the water transpired.

What seems to be the most valid statement about root pressure?

1. It is the positive pressure responsible for transport of water most commonly.

2. It may provide a considerable push to the water column during transport.

3. It may help re establish the broken water columns during transpiration

4. Its effect is most observable during mid day
