Bundle sheath cells of C3 plants
loader
B
Bundle sheath cells of C4 plants

C
Mesophyll cells of all plants

D
Mesophyll cells of C4 plants

Solution

The correct option is B Bundle sheath cells of $$C_4$$ plants
Agranal chloroplasts are the characteristic feature of C4C4 plants. The agranal chloroplasts were found to be located in bundle sheath cells. The C4C4 plants often possess characteristic leaf anatomy called kranz anatomy. Their vascular bundles are surrounded by two rings of cells; the inner ring, called bundle sheath cells, contains starch-rich chloroplasts lacking grana, which differ from those in mesophyll cells present as the outer ring.

So, the correct option is 'Option B'.
