Solution

Plants absorb water continuously through their roots, which is then conducted upwards to all the aerial parts of the plant, including the leaves. Only a small quantity of this water i.e. about 0.02% is used for the photosynthesis and other activities. The rest of the water is transpired as water vapour. Hence water transpired is the water absorbed.
