Solution

The correct option is B

Capacity to divide


Plant tissues are broadly classified into meristematic and permanent, based on their ability to divide. Meristematic tissues are group of cells, which have the ability to divide. This tissue consists of small, cuboidal and densely packed cells, which keeps on dividing to form new cells. The tissues, which are derived from the meristematic tissues, are called permanent tissues. They are the tissues, which have lost their ability to divide as they have attained their mature form.
