Solution

The correct option is A differentiation
Meristematic cells have the ability to divide continuously and help in the growth of plants. After the growth is complete, cells formed by the division of meristematic cells lose their ability to divide and start to perform a specific function. Thus they permanently acquire a specific shape, size and function. This process is called differentiation.
