Solution

The correct option is A

Both A& R are true and R explains A


Meristematic cells are small with thin primary cellulosic cell wall and with no reserve food materials but these cells are metabolically very active. They obtain biomolecules through plasmodesmata from the storage organs. Plasmodesmata are the small opening of cytoplasm through the cell walls of adjacent plant cells to communicate and transport materials.
