    So both xylem and sclerenchyma would be correct? I wrote down sclerenchyma and I'm worried...

    well that's sclerenchyma! I don't see a point it being xylem!

    fibres are always sclerenchyma. The hollow image was to mislead. It's common sense... how small is a cell and how big was that hollow diameter!

    Dude, they asked a tissue which consists of this. It can either be sclerenchyma or xylem. Both are hollow, your context of "sclerenchyma always being fibres", but it doesn't necessarily mean they're exclusive to sclerenchyma only. The hollow image wasn't a misled

    Dunno. But the hollowness doesn't mean anything... So it was to mislead. And um... sclerenchyma isn't hollow right? just lignified...?
    edit: I forgot.. It is hollow! sorryyyy

    Actually they are, just their radius is smaller than xylem vessels. You don't remember seeing a bunch of little holes around the huge hollow cell?

    Xylem and Sclerenchyma are very similar in structure, It says in the AS textbook: 'some sclerenchyma forms fibres, very long cells often found in bundles or cylinders around the outside of a stem or root'

    which is why I chose sclerenchyma, BUT I'm pretty sure both Xylem and Sclerenchyma are correct as they are so similar.

    Anaphase, cause it's the shortest phase as shown in pie chart. And the chromosomes just split really fast to observe
