    C. Plant cells have basically no need to be dry, the color of a plant cell is usually derived from the chloroplasts, and plant cells are held in place either by junctions with adjacent cells.

    The major function of the cell wall is to act as a pressure vessel, preventing over-expansion of the cell so I too will go with the 3rd answer

    C. when water moves in the cell through osmosis, the cell usually bursts. to prevent this a cell wall is present in the plant cell. due to absence of cell wall in an animal cell, the cell expands when water enters in it and eventually bursts
