Without looking at the roots how would you conclude that a plant has tap root or fibrous root?

Dear student,            
Please find below the solution to the asked query         
Without looking at the roots, we can find the type of roots present in it by identifying the type of venation in it. If the plant has parallel venation, it will be a monocot plant and so, the roots in it will be adventitious or fibrous roots.
Similarly, if the venation in leaves is found to be reticulate, it will be a dicot plant with tap root system.
