Question: how does plant absorb water from the soil?

Answer: Plants absorb water from the soil through specialized epidermal cells or root hairs. Mycorrhizae also assist with absorption of water and nutrients from the soil. For a more detailed explanation you might wish to consult a botany textbook. Your local librarian should be able to assist you in locating one. In the meantime, I hope this helps.
