Both apical meristems and intercalary meristems:-
I. Are primary meristems
II. Appear early in plant life
III. Contribute to the formation of the primary plant body

1. Only I and II are correct
2. Only I and III are correct
3. Only II and III are correct
4. I, II and III are correct

All statements are true.The cells of intercalary meristems possess the ability to divide and produce new cells.They are situated between regions of mature tissue, such as at the base of grass leaves, which are themselves located on mature stem tissue. Intercalary meristems are largely responsible for elongation in grass shoots and leaves. In rosette plants, intercalary meristems are lacking.
