loader
B

loader
C
Monocot leaves have a branching network of veins, dicot leaves have parallel veins
loader
D
Monocot roots consist of many small roots growing from a taproot, dicot roots lack a taproot
loader
E
Monocot vascular tissue is arranged randomly in the stem, dicot vascular tissue is arranged in a ring

Solution

The correct option is E Monocot vascular tissue is arranged randomly in the stem, dicot vascular tissue is arranged in a ring
The flowering plants or Angiosperms are classified into two groups monocots and dicots on the basis of the nature of embryo in the seed. In monocots , the  vascular tissue is scattered throughout the stem with no particular arrangement and has no cortex. It has single cotyledon in seeds and parallel venation in leaves. Whereas, in dicots, the vascular tissue is arranged in a ring and  is divided into a cortex and stele. It has two cotyledons in seeds with reticulate venation in leaves. 
Thus, the correct answer is option E.
