Do you understand the process of transpiration?

not really sorry

That's perfectly fine! I can explain it to you. Please give me a moment to type this up. :)

In transpiration, water will enter the plant through the roots, and move up a system of plant cells, such as xylem vessels (in the stalk of the plant) until it reaches the leaves. Transpiration is actually the process of the plant releasing water  it's kind of like plant sweating! :) Does this make sense?

yes I think

Okay, good. :) Once the water moves all the way up the plant (from the roots to the leaves) the plant will release it. It releases the water through special cells in the leaves called "stomata." Without the stomata, the plant can't sweat  which is pretty unhealthy, hehe. The stomata also allows carbon dioxide to enter the plant, which is important for the plant to grow. Here is an image of a leaf crosssection. It should look very familiar to your own:

yes so would the answer for me be letter A

Actually, no, it wouldn't be. A is pointing to a guard cell, but you were very close! Try again. :) *Hint, stomata are little holes that allow the plant to sweat. Check along the bottom and see if you can find it.*

that would make it G right
 one year ago

Not quite  that's an air space. See how it doesn't close, and it makes a little gap? Also, G is not one of your options (but they may have thrown it in to trick you).

Stomata look a lot like air spaces, but the are smaller and will close eventually. In this picture, they are showing it opened.

so D or E?
 one year ago

loser1234567898 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
I think D but I am not sure
 one year ago

tafkas77 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
D is pointing to the wax cuticle of the leaf. So unfortunately, your guess is...incorrect. Hey, look at it this way  if you ever see a question like this again, you will know what all of those letters are pointing to! :D Thank you for trying to learn, and not just get the answer. :)

loser1234567898 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
that makes it E right I just want to be sure

You are correct! Great work! :D
