Which of the following correctly predicts what would happen if a plant was lacking stomata? It would not have chloroplasts needed for photosynthesis. It would lack structural support tissue, causing it to collapse. It would not be able to transport minerals from the roots. It would lose large quantities of water to the surrounding air. I think its A not sure

    it's not A. Stomata are like "gas gates" for leaves, and they close to prevent desiccation.

    would it be B? because since it is like a gate, it needs to pass through there?

    okay, we'll it seems kinda silly that they're asking you about a certain part of a plant when you don't know where it is \(\color{red}{ON}\) the plant :P just so you know, it's on leaves (usually the bottom). The stomata close to avoid desiccation (via water vapour loss to the environment).

    So it would be D? and I think I just wasn't paying attention when they were talking about the plants.
