Solution

The correct option is C both a) and b)
Growth includes the addition of both the non-living components (apoplasmic substances) like cellulose, lignin, pectin, etc. as well as the living components (protoplasmic substances) like nucleic acids, organelles, etc.

Therefore, growth in living organisms occurs due to the synthesis of both protoplasmic substances and apoplasmic substances.
