Answer :

Land plants die if their roots remain waterlogged for a long time because excess of water, in the soils, expels all the air that is present in between the soil particles. Because of the absence of air, oxygen is not available to the roots and they respire anaerobically leading to generation of alcohol which kills the plants.
