    Would you get more marks from saying

    A) A stem cell is an undifferentiated cell of an organism which is capable of
    giving rise to many more cells of the same type, and from which certain
    other cells can arise from differentiation.


    B) A stem cell is an undifferentiated cell of an organism which can divide to produce lots more undifferentiated cells, and from which certain other types of cells can be produced from differentiation, depending on what instructions they’re given.

    My worry is that B sounds more confusing
    but A uses the phrase 'give rise to' instead of produce

    would any of this matter?? which one should I use?

    I know you might say just combine them together, but I don't know how to!
