    Solution:

    Vascular cambium forms more dead cells towards the center (secondary xylem) and less dead cells towards the periphery (secondary phloem). Cork cambium never cuts dead cells towards the center. Vascular cambium forms ray parenchyma towards the center (xylem ray) as well as towards the periphery (phloem ray).
