Which of the following is not observed during apoplastic pathway?
1. Apoplast is continuous and does not provide any barrier to water movement.
2. Movement of water occurs through intercellular spaces and wall of the cells.
3. The movement does not involve crossing of cell membrane
4. The movement is aided by cytoplasmic streaming

1. not affect the water potential at all
2. raise its water potential
3. lower its water potential
4. make its water potential zero
