Solution

The correct option is D Both Assertion and Reason are incorrect
Tageticula is commonly known as yucca moth because it can not complete its life cycle without yucca plant. They undergo a symbiotic relationship with the yucca plant.
Amorphophallus are plants with huge attractive flowers attracting bees to themselves for pollination. In return the bees get nectar from these flowers.
So, tageticula and amorphophallus both are independent of each other but they have a symbiotic nutrition with some other agents.
Therefore, the correct option is D.
