    Explanation
    Beach plants and marine algae are different in terms of their classification and structure. Beach plants are vascular plants, which means they have specialized tissues in their roots, stems, and leaves that transport food and water throughout the plant. On the other hand, marine algae are non-vascular plants, lacking these specialized tissues. This difference in structure allows beach plants to grow taller and have a more complex structure compared to marine algae, which are often smaller and simpler in form.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is Sporohyte and Gametophyte. The life cycle of ulva, a type of algae, consists of two distinct stages or generations. The sporophyte stage is the diploid phase where spores are produced through meiosis. These spores then develop into the gametophyte stage, which is the haploid phase where gametes are produced through mitosis. The fusion of gametes leads to the formation of a new sporophyte, completing the life cycle.
