what happens if the rate of transpiration is more than the rate of photosynthesis

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

Both the processes- transpiration and photosynthesis makes use of water. If the rate of transpiration exceeds the rate of photosynthesis, then the plant would dehydrate. The plant will start losing a large amount of water as vapours. Soil will become water-deficient and the plant will die off soon.
