      Tap Roots

    • B.

      Adventitious Roots

    • C.

      Fibrous Roots

    • D.

      None of the Above

    Correct Answer
    B. Adventitious Roots
    Explanation
    Adventitious roots are roots that develop from parts of the plant other than the radicle, which is the embryonic root. These roots can arise from stems, leaves, or even other roots. They provide additional support and absorption for the plant. Tap roots, on the other hand, are a type of root system where a single large root grows deep into the soil, while fibrous roots are a type of root system where numerous small roots spread out in all directions. Therefore, the correct answer is adventitious roots.

    Corm is modification of

    • A.

      Root

    • B.

      Stem

    • C.

      Leaf

    • D.

      Bud

    Correct Answer
    B. Stem
    Explanation
    A corm is a modified stem that is found in certain plants. It is an underground storage organ that is used for storing nutrients and energy. Unlike a root, which is responsible for anchoring the plant and absorbing water and nutrients, a corm is involved in the production of new shoots and leaves. Similarly, a leaf is responsible for photosynthesis and bud is an undeveloped shoot. Therefore, the correct answer is stem, as a corm is a modified stem.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Velamen tissue occurs in

    • A.

      Parasitic Roots

    • B.

      Epiphytic Roots

    • C.

      Breathing Roots

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Epiphytic Roots
    Explanation
    Epiphytic roots are aerial roots that grow above the ground and are found in plants that live as epiphytes, meaning they grow on other plants for support. These roots are exposed to the air and can absorb moisture and nutrients from the surrounding environment. Velamen tissue is a specialized tissue found in epiphytic roots that helps in water absorption and storage. Therefore, the correct answer is "Epiphytic Roots" because velamen tissue occurs in these types of roots.

      Marginal

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Marginal
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Marginal" because in pea plants, the placentation is marginal, which means that the ovules are attached to the margin or edge of the ovary. This arrangement allows for efficient fertilization and seed development as the pollen can easily reach the ovules. This type of placentation is common in many legume plants, including peas.

      Half inferior

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Superior
    Explanation
    In a hypogynous flower, the ovary is positioned superiorly. This means that the ovary is located above the attachment point of the other floral parts, such as the sepals, petals, and stamens. This superior ovary position is a characteristic feature of many flowering plants and allows for efficient pollination and fertilization.

      Absent

    • D.

      None of the Above

    Correct Answer
    B. Subapical
    Explanation
    The growing point in the root refers to the region where cell division and growth occur. In this case, the correct answer is "Subapical" because the growing point in the root is located just below the tip of the root, known as the apical meristem. This region is responsible for the elongation of the root and the formation of new cells.

    • C.

      Persistant

    • D.

      Evergreen

    Correct Answer
    B. Caducous
    Explanation
    Caducous is the correct answer because it refers to the characteristic of plants or trees that shed their leaves early in the season, typically before winter. This term is often used to describe deciduous plants, which lose their leaves annually. The other options, such as persistent and evergreen, do not accurately describe plants that shed their leaves early.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    Sickle shaped expanded leaf petiole is called

    • A.

      Phyloclade

    • B.

      Cladode

    • C.

      Phylode

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Phylode
    Explanation
    A sickle-shaped expanded leaf petiole is called a phylode. This structure is found in certain plants, such as Acacia species, where the petiole expands and takes on the form and function of a leaf. This adaptation allows the plant to reduce water loss in arid environments while still being able to carry out photosynthesis. Phylodes are often mistaken for leaves due to their appearance, but they lack a lamina, which is the flat, blade-like part of a typical leaf. Instead, the expanded petiole of a phylode performs the functions of both a petiole and a leaf.

    • C.

      Nepenthes

    • D.

      All the Above

    Correct Answer
    D. All the Above
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "All the Above" because all three options mentioned - Dionea, Drosera, and Nepenthes - are examples of insectivorous plants. Insectivorous plants are those that obtain nutrients by trapping and digesting insects. Dionea, also known as Venus Flytrap, has leaves with sensitive trigger hairs that close when an insect touches them. Drosera, also known as Sundew, has sticky tentacles on its leaves that trap insects. Nepenthes, also known as Pitcher Plant, has pitcher-shaped leaves that contain digestive enzymes to break down trapped insects. Therefore, all three plants mentioned are insectivorous.

    In pea the stamens are

    • A.

      Monodelphous

    • B.

      Didelphous

    • C.

      Polydelphous

    • D.

      None of the Above

    Correct Answer
    B. Didelphous
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Didelphous. In pea plants, the stamens are didelphous, which means they are arranged in two sets. This arrangement is characterized by the fusion of the filaments of the stamens into two separate groups. This is in contrast to monodelphous, where the filaments are fused into a single group, and polydelphous, where the filaments are fused into multiple groups. Therefore, didelphous is the correct term to describe the arrangement of stamens in pea plants.
