What would happen to plants if there is no sunlight?

Depends on whether they were chlorophyll- producing plants or not

They would have to rely on artificial lighting----That works too, IF it is available.

There would be no Photosenthesis. Pollenation hence survival

The true plants would die. (And... so would we...) If geo-thermal energy remained, there would be some bacteria, and some creatures living off that bacteria that would survive for a while - until the oceans froze solid.

Plants produce their own food through a process called photosynthesis. As the name suggests (photo-), sunlight is essential to it.

They would die (except for mushrooms).

Somewhere around 98% of plant on the planet would die rather quickly. Many others have evolved enough to survive off from unnatural sources of light, or through nutrients collected by other means. Although not a plant, the great benefactors would be fungi, as they'd feast well on the decay while flourishing in the lack of light. Fungi are fantastic survivors.
