Answer :

Due to loss of water by transpiration, the leaves of plants create a suction, or a sucking force, which has the strength to pull water up to greater height. The conduction and transportation forces can pull water up to small heights, but they are weak forces and cannot pull water up in tall trees. Gravitational force pulls water downwards, towards the soil.
