Expert Answer:

Permanent cells have lost their power of division except parenchyma.

They are derived from meristematic tissue.

Their cells show large vacuoles.

Their cells are well differentiated and are found in a variety of shapes.

The metabolic activity is low in these cells compared to meristematic tissues.

Permanent tissues may be either simple or complex in nature.
