Question of The Day07-03-2023

Which of the following structures help in the guttation process?


Correct Answer : c ) Hydathodes

Explanation :

Guttation is the process of loss of water through the margin of leaves. It is also known as the bleeding of water. It occurs during the morning time when the stomata are closed and plants absorb water from the soil through the process of osmosis. Due to the closing of stomata, the excessive water present inside the plant is lost through the hydathodes, which are present in the marginal region of leaves.

Stomata, lenticels and surface of the leaves help in transpiration.

Hence, option (c) is correct.
