I have an exam question that says bone marrow stem cells are pluripotent but I thought they were multipotent?
I've checked in my text book and it seems to suggest they are multipotent as well, what do you guys think?

Pluripotent means they can divide into most cells apart from the placenta. Stem cells are pluripotent.

It depends on the stem cell. Stem cells from most adults are multipotent like the bone marrow. The exam question was wrong apparently it wasn't an official one
