     The cork is produced by the cork cambium which is a layer of meristamatically active cells which serve as lateral meristem for the periderm . The cork cambium which is also called the *phellogen* .
    The phelloderm which is not always present in all barks is a layer of cells formed by an interior to the cork cambium.
    Together the phellem (cork) , phellogen (cork cambium) , and the phelloderm constitute the periderm .

    If asked about*outer bark* then option 1 i.e.  phellem+ phellogen + phelloderm is correct. 

    And if *inner bark* is asked then option 4 i.e . Periderm + cortex +pericycle + secondary phloem . Is correct.
