Which Of These Associations Is Incorrect?
a) Epidermal cells-protection
b) Stomata-gas exchange
c) Sclerenchyma cells-cell division
d) Sieve-tube cells-sugar transport
e) Xylem cells-water transport
The correct answer: Among the associations the incorrect one is c) Sclerenchyma cells-cell division.
The xylem and phloem tissues in the plant are together known as the vascular bundles of the plant. They help in the transport function of the elements throughout the plant.
The water needs to reach all the cells of the plant which is carried by the xylem while the nutrients are carried by the phloem. This together helps in cellular functions all around the plants and help in plant actions.
