OMG!! You have just proved that I will fail my exam on Friday!!!

Good quiz though

I think you got a bit confused with transpiration :S

Good quiz though (: even if some of the answers are wrong...


Oops, could you tell me which ones so I can correct them please? Quite worrying I don't know! Hahaa.


good quiz


this is great stuff-much thanks!


A useful little quiz to test your knowledge of plant transport after you have finished revising the topic.  This topic is found in most GCSE specifications.

I have changed one question to make it clearer since two answers could have been correct. It might be worth saying that stomata can close in the daytime if the plant is in danger of wilting, so transpiration can stop when a plant gets short of water.
