Solution :-

Abscisic acid promotes the closure of stomata in the epidermis and increases plant tolerance to a variety of stresses. As a result, it is also known as the stress hormone. It encourages seed dormancy and seed germination under favourable conditions. It makes seeds more resistant to desiccation. It also promotes the abscission of leaves, fruits, and flowers and helps in the activation of dormancy in plants at the end of the growing season
