Class 11 Biology Plant Physiology Transport in Plants



Which of the following is not the purpose of transpiration process?
(a)
Supplying water for photosynthesis
(b)
Maintaining shape and structure of plants
(c)
Translocation of sucrose from source to sink
(d)
Cooling the leaf surfaces
Correct answer: (c) 
Solution: Transpiration is the process of loss of water through the aerial parts of the plant. It depends upon the amount of humidity level of the atmosphere.
When there is a high level of moisture then there is no concentration gradient between leaf and the atmosphere there is a minimum loss of water through transpiration. 
So, the correct answer is 'Translocation of sucrose from source to sink'.
