Solution

The correct option is C Meristematic tissue has cells that are capable of cell division.
Meristematic cells are living cells with a high metabolic rate. Cells in the meristem can develop into other tissues and organs that occur in plants. These cells continue to divide until they get differentiated and lose the ability to divide.
