In Kranz anatomy, the bundle sheath cells have

  • thin walls, many intercellular spaces and no chloroplasts

  • thick walls, no intercellular spaces and a large number of chloroplasts

  • thin walls, no intercellular spaces and several chloroplasts

  • thick walls, many intercellular space and few chloroplasts

Answer

B.

thick walls, no intercellular spaces and a large number of chloroplasts

C4 plants have a characteristic leaf anatomy called Kranz anatomy.Kranz means wreath (ring) and is a reflection of the arrangement of cells. The large sized bundle sheath cells may form several layers around the vascular bundles. These cells are characterised by having a large number of agranal chloroplasts, thick walls impervious to gaseous exchange and no intercellular spaces.
