Hi Princess,

 Yes you are right, it is leaf blade not leaf base.

‘Petiole holds the leaf blade to light’ means petiole help the leaf lamina or blade to lie in horizontal position  facing towards sunlight not droop down.

 No leaf base and leaf blade are different. Leaf base is the part of leaf which attaches leaf to base of stem. Leaf blade is also called leaf lamina, the green expanded part with midrib and veins.
