Q.63. Symplastic pathway involves all the following except
(a) Movement of substances is relatively slower
(b) It is added by cytoplasmic streaming
(c) Involves passage of substances through cell membrane down a potential gradient
(d) Intracellular movement occurs through plasmodesmata

Dear student,
Answer is c) Involves passage of substances through cell membrane down a potential gradient.
Symplastic pathway involves movement of water from one cell to another through cytoplasmic connections called plasmodesmata and not through cell membrane but only once water has to pass through cell membrane to enter into the cell and further water moves through plasmodesmata into another cell.

Regards
