Joyce Huang asked in Science

What is the advantage of having many tiny tubes in the stem to transport water and food instead of just one tube?

Thank You

Dear student,

Advantage of having many tiny tubes rather a single tube is that,many tubes can carry large amount of water and food  when compared to single tube.
The number of leaves arising from the branches of stem,gets water and food supply at a time so the plants have many tiny tubes rather than single tube.
