  1. The stem moves water up the plant.
  2. The root moves water up the plant
  3. The stem moves water down the plant
  4. The roots move water down the plant


The water absorbed by the roots is carried to other body parts through the stem.

The correct answer is: The stem moves water up the plant.

    • Plant stems have some very special cells called xylem.
    • These cells form long thin tubes that run from the roots up the stems to the leaves.
    • Their job is to carry water upward from the roots to every part of a plant.
