- Apical Meristem
- Ground Tissue
- Xylem Cells
- Phloem Cells
The major site of photosynthesis is d. chloroplasts.
While the other options are all important parts of plants, they are not directly involved in the process of photosynthesis:
- Apical meristem: This is the region where new plant cells are formed, not where photosynthesis occurs.
- Ground tissue: This tissue provides support and storage for the plant, but it does not contain the chlorophyll necessary for photosynthesis.
- Xylem cells: These cells transport water and dissolved minerals throughout the plant, but they are not involved in photosynthesis.
- Phloem cells: These cells transport sugars and other organic materials throughout the plant, but they also do not contain chlorophyll and are not involved in photosynthesis.
