Dear student,        
Please find below the solution to the asked query                                                                

1. Imbibition is the phenomenon by which liquid is absorbed by the living or dead cells.

2. Part of the plant mainly involved in transpiration is a leaf.

3. Endodermis is the innermost layer of cells lying between the cortex and the vascular tissue. It has a strip of water proof material (suberin) known as the casparian strip that forces water through the endodermal cells and in such a way regulates the amount of water entering the xylem.
