Epidermis is the outermost layer of cells covering a plant. It is overlaid by a cuticle and its functions are principally to protect the plant from injury and to reduce water loss. It also helps in gaseous exchange and transpiration. 

But the conduction of water occurs by xylem which is a type complex permanent tissue.

So, The correct option is (C) Conduction of water
