d. It gets surrounded by primary phloem
Assertion and Reason
7. These questions consist of two statements each printed as Assertion and Reason. While answering these questions you are required to choose any one of the following four responses.
A. If both Assertion and Reason are true but the Reason is a correct explanation of the Assertion.
B. If both Assertion and Reason are true but Reason is not a correct explanation of the Assertion
C. If Assertion is true but the Reason is false.
D. If both Assertion and Reason are false.
1. Assertion: In woody stems the amount of heart wood continue to increase year after Year
Reason: The activity of cambial ring continues uninterrupted
2. Assertion: Secondary growth in dicot roots occurs with the help of vascular cambium and phellogen.
Reason: Vascular cambium is completely primary in origin.
