Solution

The correct option is B A is true, R is false
If the plant is infected by the virus, the apical and axillary meristem will remain free of virus. So, one can remove the meristem and grow it invitro to obtain virus-free plants. Virus doesn't grow during the growth of host tissue in the artificial medium.
So, A is true and R is false.
