Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    ___________________ are the two common groups of plants.

    Correct Answer
    plants that produce seeds
    plants that do not produce seeds
    Explanation
    Plants that produce seeds and plants that do not produce seeds are the two common groups of plants. This classification is based on the reproductive method of plants. Plants that produce seeds reproduce through the formation of seeds, which contain the embryo of the plant and serve as a means of dispersal. On the other hand, plants that do not produce seeds reproduce through other methods such as spores or vegetative propagation. This division helps in understanding the diversity and characteristics of different plant species.

    ____________________ are caled the seed producing plants.

    Correct Answer
    spermatophytes
    Explanation
    Spermatophytes are called the seed producing plants. Spermatophytes are a group of plants that produce seeds as a means of reproduction. These seeds contain an embryo and are enclosed within a protective structure, such as a fruit. This group includes gymnosperms, which have naked seeds, and angiosperms, which have seeds enclosed within a fruit. Spermatophytes are the dominant group of plants on Earth and play a crucial role in the reproduction and survival of many plant species.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Gymnosperms and angiosperms are groups of seed-producing plants.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Gymnosperms and angiosperms are indeed groups of seed-producing plants. Gymnosperms are a group of plants that produce seeds that are not enclosed in a fruit, such as conifers. Angiosperms, on the other hand, are a group of plants that produce seeds that are enclosed in a fruit, such as flowering plants. Both groups play a crucial role in the reproduction and diversity of plant species.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    __________________ are seed-producing plants that do not have true flowers.

    Correct Answer
    Gymnosperms
    gymnosperms
    Explanation
    Gymnosperms are seed-producing plants that do not have true flowers. They are a group of plants that produce seeds in cones or other structures, rather than in flowers. Gymnosperms include conifers, cycads, ginkgoes, and gnetophytes. These plants have naked seeds, meaning that the seeds are not enclosed within a protective fruit like in flowering plants. Instead, the seeds are usually found on the surface of scales or leaves. Gymnosperms have adapted to various environments and are important for their ecological and economic significance.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Gymnosperms are also known as ___________________ since they produce woody cones.

    Correct Answer
    conifers
    Explanation
    Gymnosperms are a group of plants that are known for producing woody cones. These cones contain the reproductive structures of the plants, such as seeds. One specific group of gymnosperms is called conifers. Conifers are characterized by their cone-bearing structures and include trees such as pine, spruce, and fir. Therefore, the correct answer is "conifers."

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Places where conifers grow well.

    • A.

      North America

    • B.

      Europe

    • C.

      Africa

    • D.

      Australia

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. North America
    B. Europe
    Explanation
    Conifers are well-suited to grow in North America and Europe due to their favorable climate and soil conditions. These regions provide the necessary cold winters and mild summers that conifers thrive in. Additionally, the soil in North America and Europe is typically well-drained and acidic, which is ideal for coniferous trees. Africa and Australia, on the other hand, have climates that are generally too warm and dry for conifers to grow successfully. Therefore, North America and Europe are the most suitable places for conifers to flourish.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    _________________ are seed plants that produce flowers.

    Correct Answer(s)
    angiosperms
    Explanation
    Angiosperms are a type of seed plant that produce flowers. Flowers are the reproductive structures of angiosperms, containing the male and female reproductive organs. Angiosperms are the most diverse group of plants on Earth and include familiar plant species such as roses, sunflowers, and orchids. They have evolved various mechanisms to attract pollinators and ensure successful reproduction. The flowers of angiosperms eventually develop into fruits, which contain seeds for dispersal.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Most of the trees in the Philippines are ______________________.

    Correct Answer(s)
    angiosperms
    Explanation
    The answer "angiosperms" is correct because angiosperms are the most common type of trees found in the Philippines. Angiosperms are flowering plants that produce seeds enclosed in a fruit. They are known for their diversity and include a wide range of tree species such as mango, coconut, and narra, which are commonly found in the Philippines.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    The other name for angiosperms is _____________________.

    Correct Answer(s)
    flowering plants
    Explanation
    Angiosperms are commonly known as flowering plants. This is because angiosperms are a group of plants that produce flowers as part of their reproductive process. Flowers are the reproductive structures of angiosperms, which contain the male and female reproductive organs necessary for pollination and fertilization. Therefore, the term "flowering plants" is a suitable alternative name for angiosperms.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    What are the two groups of angiosperms?

    • A.

      Monocotyledons or monocots

    • B.

      Angiosperms and gymnosperms

    • C.

      Dicotyledons or dicots

    • D.

      None of the above

    • E.

      All of the above

    • F.

      A and c

    Correct Answer
    F. A and c
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "a and c" because monocotyledons or monocots and dicotyledons or dicots are the two groups of angiosperms. Angiosperms are flowering plants that produce seeds enclosed in a protective structure called an ovary. Monocots have one seed leaf (cotyledon) while dicots have two seed leaves. Therefore, both options a and c are correct as they include these two groups.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    ___________________ are plants that produce seeds with one leaf.

    Correct Answer
    monocots
    Explanation
    Monocots are plants that produce seeds with one leaf. This means that during germination, only one embryonic leaf, called a cotyledon, emerges from the seed. Monocots include plants such as grasses, lilies, and orchids. Their leaves typically have parallel veins, and their flower parts usually come in multiples of three. This is in contrast to dicots, which produce seeds with two cotyledons and have leaves with branching veins. Understanding the distinction between monocots and dicots is important in plant classification and identification.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    The following are examples of monocots. 

    • A.

      Shrubs

    • B.

      Lilies

    • C.

      Onions

    • D.

      Coconuts

    • E.

      Cedars

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Lilies
    C. Onions
    D. Coconuts
    Explanation
    The correct answer includes lilies, onions, and coconuts as examples of monocots. Monocots are a type of flowering plant that have a single cotyledon, or embryonic leaf, in their seeds. They typically have parallel veined leaves, flower parts in multiples of three, and fibrous root systems. Lilies, onions, and coconuts all exhibit these characteristics, making them examples of monocots.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    ____________________ are plants that produce seeds with two seed leaves.

    Correct Answer(s)
    dicots
    Explanation
    Dicots are plants that produce seeds with two seed leaves. This means that when the seed germinates, it will produce two initial leaves known as cotyledons. These cotyledons provide nutrients to the growing seedling until it can develop its true leaves and start photosynthesizing. Dicots are one of the two main groups of flowering plants, the other being monocots, which produce seeds with only one seed leaf.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    The following are examples of dicots except :

    • A.

      Avocado

    • B.

      Santol

    • C.

      Pine trees

    • D.

      Mango

    Correct Answer
    C. Pine trees
    Explanation
    Pine trees are not examples of dicots because they belong to the group of gymnosperms, which are a type of seed-producing plants that do not have flowers or fruits. Dicots, on the other hand, are a type of flowering plants that typically have two seed leaves (cotyledons), net-like veins on their leaves, and flower parts in multiples of four or five. Avocado, santol, and mango are all examples of dicots as they are flowering plants with these characteristics.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    The following are the three important groups of plants that have no seeds except :

    • A.

      Thallophytes

    • B.

      Spermatophytes

    • C.

      Bryophytes

    • D.

      Pteridophytes

    Correct Answer
    B. Spermatophytes
    Explanation
    Spermatophytes are the only group of plants among thallophytes, bryophytes, and pteridophytes that have seeds. Thallophytes include algae and fungi, which reproduce through spores or fragmentation. Bryophytes, such as mosses and liverworts, also reproduce through spores. Pteridophytes, including ferns and horsetails, reproduce through spores as well. However, spermatophytes, which include gymnosperms and angiosperms, have evolved to produce seeds as a means of reproduction. Seeds provide protection and nourishment to the developing embryo, increasing the chances of survival and dispersal for spermatophytes.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    ____________________ are the simplest groups of plants. They have no roots, stems or leaves.

    Correct Answer
    thallophytes
    Explanation
    Thallophytes are the simplest groups of plants because they lack roots, stems, and leaves. Thallophytes are characterized by their simple body structure, which is typically a thallus, a flat or ribbon-like structure that performs the functions of roots, stems, and leaves. Thallophytes include various types of algae, fungi, and lichens. These organisms rely on other means, such as diffusion, for obtaining nutrients and water since they lack specialized structures like roots and stems.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    The following are examples of thallophytes. 

    • A.

      Algae

    • B.

      Fungi

    • C.

      Molds

    • D.

      Yeasts

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Algae
    B. Fungi
    Explanation
    Thallophytes are a group of plants that do not have true stems, roots, or leaves. They are characterized by their simple structure and lack of specialized tissues. Algae are photosynthetic organisms that can be found in aquatic environments, ranging from microscopic unicellular forms to large seaweeds. Fungi are heterotrophic organisms that obtain nutrients by decomposing organic matter. They can be found in various habitats and can take on different forms, such as mushrooms or molds. Yeasts are single-celled fungi that can reproduce asexually by budding. Therefore, algae and fungi are examples of thallophytes.

      Can make their own food

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Have chlorophyll
    B. Colored
    C. Usually grow in water
    E. Can make their own food
    Explanation
    Algae are photosynthetic organisms that contain chlorophyll, allowing them to produce their own food through the process of photosynthesis. They are usually colored due to the presence of pigments such as chlorophyll and carotenoids. Algae are commonly found in water bodies, where they can thrive and grow. They have the ability to make their own food, which sets them apart from organisms that do not have chlorophyll and rely on consuming other organisms for nutrition.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    The following are examples of algae. 

    • A.

      Seaweeds

    • B.

      Mushrooms

    • C.

      Pond scum

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Seaweeds
    C. Pond scum
    Explanation
    The correct answer is seaweeds and pond scum because both of these examples are types of algae. Algae are a diverse group of photosynthetic organisms that can be found in aquatic environments. Seaweeds are large, multicellular algae that are commonly found in marine habitats. Pond scum, on the other hand, refers to the slimy layer of algae that can form on the surface of stagnant water bodies such as ponds. Mushrooms, however, are not examples of algae. They are fungi that belong to a different kingdom of organisms.

    The following are the characteristics of fungi. 

    • A.

      Do not have chlorophyll

    • B.

      Cannot make their own food

    • C.

      Some are colorless while others have varied colors

    • D.

      They grow in water

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Do not have chlorophyll
    B. Cannot make their own food
    C. Some are colorless while others have varied colors
    Explanation
    Fungi do not have chlorophyll, which means they cannot carry out photosynthesis and produce their own food. Instead, they obtain nutrients by decomposing organic matter or by forming symbiotic relationships with other organisms. This is why they cannot make their own food. Additionally, fungi can have different colors, ranging from colorless to various shades, depending on the species. Some fungi grow in water, while others can be found in various habitats such as soil, plants, or even on decaying matter.

      Molds

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    The statement "The following are examples of fungi" implies that all the listed items (yeasts, mushrooms, and molds) are examples of fungi. Fungi are a group of organisms that include yeasts, mushrooms, and molds, among others. Therefore, the correct answer is "all of the above" because all the listed items are examples of fungi.

    Rate this question:

  • 22. 

    __________________ are simple plants but have more complicated parts than the algae and fungi. 

    Correct Answer
    bryophytes
    Explanation
    Bryophytes are simple plants that have more complicated parts than algae and fungi. This means that bryophytes have more complex structures and specialized tissues compared to algae and fungi. While algae and fungi are relatively simple organisms, bryophytes have developed more advanced adaptations to survive and reproduce on land. They have specialized structures like stems, leaves, and roots, which allow them to absorb water and nutrients from the soil. Bryophytes also have reproductive structures like spores and gametangia, enabling them to reproduce without the need for water.

    Rate this question:

  • 23. 

    Mosses and liverworts belong to the bryophytes group of plants.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Mosses and liverworts are indeed part of the bryophytes group of plants. Bryophytes are a group of non-vascular plants that lack specialized tissues for transporting water and nutrients. They are characterized by their small size, lack of true roots, stems, and leaves, and their ability to reproduce through spores. Mosses and liverworts are two common examples of bryophytes, making the statement "True" correct.

    Rate this question:

  • 24. 

    _________________________ are plants that have true roots, stems and leaves, but do not have flowers, fruits or seeds.

    Correct Answer
    pteridophytes
    Explanation
    Pteridophytes are plants that have true roots, stems, and leaves, but do not have flowers, fruits, or seeds. These plants reproduce through spores instead of seeds. They include ferns, horsetails, and clubmosses. Pteridophytes have a vascular system that allows them to transport water and nutrients throughout their body. They are typically found in damp environments and play an important role in ecosystems by providing habitat and food for various organisms.

    Rate this question:

  • 25. 

    Liverworts, ferns and club mosses belongs to the pteridophytes group of plants.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because liverworts, ferns, and club mosses do not belong to the pteridophytes group of plants. Instead, they belong to the bryophytes group, which includes non-vascular plants. Pteridophytes, on the other hand, are vascular plants that include ferns, horsetails, and whisk ferns.
