# Radical vascular bundles are those in which

A. xylem is surrounded by phloem

B. phloem is surrounded by xylem

C. xylem and phloem occur on the same radius

D. xylem and phloem occur on the different radii

### Solution(By Examveda Team)

Radical vascular bundles are those in which xylem and phloem occur on the different radii.

1. the vascular bundle can either be radial or conjoint

radial: the components of the vascular bundle (xylem & phloem) are arrange separaetly in different radii. - typically found in roots of monocots and dicots.

conjoint: xylem and phloem are arranged together in the same radius - this is seen in the stem and leaves
