Neem leaf 

Your Answer
B

Gulmohar leaf 

Your Answer
C

Banana leaf 

Correct Answer
D

Clover leaf


Solution

The correct option is D

Clover leaf


In palmately compound leaves, the leaflets are attached at a common point, i.e., at the tip of petiole (resembling an open hand, having lobes radiating from a common point. The clover leaf is an example of palmate leaf. In a pinnately compound leaf a number of leaflets are present on a common axis, the rachis, which represents the midrib of the leaf as in neem and gulmohar. The banana plant has simple leaves where the lamina is continuous.
