Solution

(a) collenchyma

The flexibility in plants is due to a permanent tissue, collenchyma. It allows easy bending in various parts of a plant (leaf, stem) without breaking.

It also provides mechanical support to plants. Collenchyma provides extra mechanical and structural support, particularly in regions of new growth.
