Answer:
Fibrous root systems do not penetrate as deeply into the soil as taproots do, and they are made up of a large number of roots that are all similar in size. Tap root systems are composed of one primary root which is thick and penetrates deeply, while other smaller roots grow off of this primary root. 
taproot systems have an extrememly large surface area, and so are very good at absorbing water when there is enough available near the surface. The advantage of tap roots is that they can get at water lower down in case it does not rain enough, etc.
