Complete each sentence choosing the correct option


A vine is any plant with a growth habit of trailing or scandent (that is, climbing) stems, lianas or runners. The word vine can also refer to such stems or runners themselves, for instance, when used ____ wicker work.

In parts of the world, including the British Isles, the term "vine" usually
applies exclusively ____ grapevines., while the term "climber" is used for all climbing plants.

Certain plants always grow as vines, while a few grow as vines only part ____ the time. For instance, poison ivy and bittersweet can grow as low shrubs when support is not available, but will become vines when support is available.

A vine displays a growth form based on long stems. This has two purposes. A vine may use rock exposures, other plants, or other supports for growth rather than investing energy in a lot of supportive tissue, enabling the plant to reach sunlight with a minimum investment of energy.

Choose the letter of the correct preposition.
