From the following four descriptions, identify the ones that are true regarding sugar transport:
P. Sugar is mainly transported by pressure flow.
Q. Sugar transport is due to an osmotically generated pressure gradient.
R. Sugar transport is always from leaves to fruits.
S. Sugar is transported by phloem.

From the following four descriptions, identify the ones that are true regarding cohesion-tension theory:
W. The greater the rate of transpiration, the greater will be the ascent of sap.
X. The transpiration pull is the main force behind the ascent of sap.
Y. The greater the ascent of sap, the lower will be the rate of photosynthesis.
