Take The 10th Grade Biology Quiz On Absorption By Roots

Roots absorb nourishment and water for living things, and to be able to grow, and plants need water and nutrients from the soil. The embryo roots into its’ mother’s uterus to also be fed during the gestational time. Roots are mostly referred to in plant life, but if you take the quiz, you will find that they will draw you in to know more about their purpose.
