Question: What is transpiration?

Answer: Transpiration is a process in which water is lost from the leaves of the cell through small opening, so that more water can be taken up.

Question: What is translocation?

Answer: Translocation is a process in which prepared food moves from leaves to rest of the plants where it is required for respiration.

Question: How are xylem and phloem arranged in stem?

Answer: Xylem and phloem are arranged in vascular bundles in stem. In the stem, these vascular bundles are arranged in circular patterns, just beneath the outer layer of cells.

Question: What is vascular bundle?

Answer: Vascular bundles are phloem and xylem combined together. Vascular bundles contain many strong fibres that help to make the stem strong and withstand the force of strong winds.

Question: Why are plant roots important?

Answer: Plant roots soke up water and minerals from the soil, and help in resiting the pulling and stretching force when the stem is blown.
