Q. How is the movement of leaves of the sensitive plant different from the movement of a shoot towards light?

 

Answer:-

The movement of leaves of the sensitive plant is a nastic movement, i.e. it does not depend on the direction of the stimulus. On the other hand, the movement of a shoot towards light is a tropic movement, i.e. it depends on the direction from which light is coming.
