The correct option is B

They differentiate to form permanent tissue.


Cells of meristematic tissue differentiate to form different types of permanent tissue. Such a tissue comprises cells in which growth has either stopped completely or for the time being.

Permanent tissue can be classified into two main types.

1. Simple permanent tissue (provides support and protection)

2. Complex permanent tissue (conducts nutrients and water)
