In mosses the structure which performs the function of water absorption is the _________?
A. root hairs
B. rhizoids
C. capsule
D. hyphae

Correct Option: Answer is B
Mosses do not have a proper roots, but have threadlike rhizoids that anchor them to their substrate.

Rhizoids absorb water by capillary action, in which water moves up between threads of rhizoids and not through each of them as it does in roots.

hyphae are also important in the reproductive process in that they produce new spores while root hairs are important for the uptake of nutrients
