  2. False
Correct Answer: Option(a)
Answer A: True
Transfusion tissue immediately surrounding at least part of the vascular bundles in the leaves of gymnosperms, e.g. Pinus. Transfusion tissue is composed of tracheids (transfusion tracheids) with conspicuous bordered pits , and parenchyma cells (transfusion parenchyma) containing tannin-like substances and sometimes starch. The main function of the transfusion tissue is believed to be the transport of materials between the vascular bundles and the mesophyll.
