Solution

The correct option is D Dyes will be transported to the top via the stem.
The blue and red dye will be transported to the top of the celery stalk via the hollow tubes present in the stem. The cells in these tubes are arranged end to end vertically and do not meet each other horizontally. Hence, the colours will not mix in the stem.
