explain the paragraph of Intercalary meristem upto the word organ. Explain the lines through diagram too. The meristems are classified variously on the basis of origin and position in the plant body, function, plane of division and stage or method of development. 
(A) Depending upon the position in the plant body, meristems  are of the following three types (Fig. 6.1) :
