    Correct Answer

This system of classification is known as the phylogenetic system, which focuses on the evolutionary history and relationships among different plant species. Therefore, the statement that plants are classified by dividing them into groups with similar characteristics is false.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    Horticulture deals with living things, specifically plants, and involves the cultivation, propagation, and management of plants for food, medicinal purposes, and aesthetic appeal. The field of horticulture encompasses a wide range of disciplines such as plant breeding, plant physiology, and soil science. Due to the complex nature of living organisms, horticulture can be unpredictable and variable, as factors such as weather conditions, pests, and diseases can greatly impact plant growth and development. Gardening, on the other hand, is a subset of horticulture that focuses on the cultivation and care of plants in a domestic or ornamental setting.
