Solution

The correct option is A If both assertion and reason are true and reason is the correct explanation of assertion
Somatic embryos are non- zygotic embryo like structures that develop from any type of tissue in plant tissue culture. Plant cells are totipent and hence can dedifferentiate. Therefore any cell can form a somatic embryo.
