The root tips of a plant were cut and the plant was replanted. What will happen to the plant and why?

This will lead to the death of the plant as there will be no growth of roots (meristematic cells are removed) thereby, preventing the proper absorption of water and minerals from the soil.

the meristemammatic cells(cells that can divide ) are located at the root tips . the root of the plants are able to grow and absorb water due to the multiplication of these cells . however when the root tips are cut these cells are no longer present and thus as the plant doesn't grow.
