Right answer is (a) Nowhere
 
For explanation I would say: In submerged hydrophytes stomata are absent. These are true water plants in which plant cells are used to absorb nutrients, water, and dissolved gases in water. Some examples of submerged hydrophytes are Hydrilla, Potamogeton, Utricularia, etc.
