  1. Have thin walls to facilitate gaseous exchange
  2. Have large intercellular spaces

  4. Have a high density of chloroplasts


Solution

The correct option is D Have a high density of chloroplasts
A layer of cells surrounding the vascular bundle is the bundle-sheath cells. They are present in C4 plants. They have large number of chloroplasts. The bundle-sheath cells have thick-walled impervious to gaseous exchange and no intercellular spaces.
