  • 1. 
    The rafflesia arnoldi is the biggest flower in the world. It is unusual because of its large size. The flower is almost 100 centimeters in diameter and 140 centimeters in height. " Rafflesia" is derived from the name of the British Governor General, Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles, who once governed and built the Botanical Garden in Bogor. Though it is called Rafflesia after Raffles, the man who discovered the plant was Beccary, an Italian botanist who visited Sumatra in 1928. Rafflesia consists of two parts : the stick-like part which grows in the middle and the petals around and below it. While the flower is blossoming, it has a very unpleasant smell which affects insects, especially green flies. They seem eager to explore the flower. But if the flies touch the bottom part of the sticklike centre, they die. Question: What is the suitable tittle for the text?
