Solution

The correct option is A Translocated
When a plant part undergoes senescence, nutrient resources(minerals and carbohydrates) shift away or are translocated from the senescened part to other parts. In leaves at the time of senescene we observe loss of chlorophyll, RNA and protein, transport of nutrients and then abscission.
