Your friend discovers a plant in the desert. He describes to you that the area is very hot and dry, and it only rains in Spring, and not very much. He also shares with you that there are many desert animals, like the jackrabbit, who eat plants. What statements are true? A) When it rains (which is rare), the plant needs to hold on to as much water as possible, so the leaves might swell up with water. B) The leaves might be thorny, or wingspanly, or needle-like, to prevent animals from attacking or eating the plant. Because the leaves are tiny, another benefit is that the plant will lose less water. C) The plant will be very tall and have broad, large leaves to gather more sunlight. D) The plant will only conduct photosynthesis at night, after the sun is down.
