    B. Stem
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Stem. The papaya is a small, sparsely branched plant with a single stem. The stem is the main structural part of the plant that provides support and transports water, nutrients, and sugars between the roots and leaves.

    The correct answer is "Seven lobes". This means that the leaves in question have seven distinct lobes or divisions. The term "palmately lobed" refers to the arrangement of lobes radiating out from a central point, resembling the shape of a hand with outstretched fingers. In this case, the leaves are not only palmately lobed, but they specifically have seven lobes.

    Correct Answer
    C. Pollen
    Explanation
    The male papaya tree never produces fruit because it only produces pollen. Pollen is the male reproductive cell of the plant, which is transferred to the female flowers for fertilization. While the female papaya tree produces fruit, the male tree's main role is to produce pollen to facilitate pollination and reproduction in the species.

      Ovaries

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Ovaries
    Explanation
    The correct answer is ovaries because ovaries are the female reproductive organs in plants that contain the female gametes and are responsible for producing seeds. In the given question, it is mentioned that the hermaphrodite plant has flowers containing both male stamen and female organs, which include the ovaries. This means that the plant can self-pollinate by transferring pollen from the male stamen to the female ovaries, leading to the production of seeds.

    Correct Answer
    C. Yellow flesh
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Yellow flesh. This is because the question is asking about the other kind of papaya commonly grown, which is different from the red or orange flesh variety. Since none of the other options (red flesh, grey flesh) are the correct answer, yellow flesh is the only remaining option.

The biological rank "Species" refers to the most specific level of classification in the Linnaean system, where organisms that share common characteristics and can interbreed belong to the same species. Therefore, red papaya and yellow pawpaw are different species within the same genus or plant family.
