Answer (2) It forms secondary cortex on its outerside

Sol. Cork cambium (Phellogen) is dedifferentiated tissue, so it is a secondary meristem. It is couple of layers thick and cuts off cork (Phellem) towards outer side and secondary cortex (Phelloderm) towards inner side

Phellem + Phellogen + Phelloderm together constitute periderm.
