Question

Below is a picture of the potato plant, can you recognize which are the reproductive part and the vegetative part?


  1. Vegetative Part – Leaf, Reproductive part – Potato tuber

  2. Vegetative Part – Potato tuber, Reproductive part – Leaf

  3. Vegetative Part – Root, Reproductive part – Flower

  4. Vegetative Part – Potato tuber, Reproductive part – Flower


Solution

The correct option is D

Vegetative Part – Potato tuber, Reproductive part – Flower


The vegetative part of the plant has buds on it. From these buds new individual plants can grow. In the potato plant, the potato tuber contains “eyes” which are actually buds. If you provide sufficient moisture you can observe new plants growing from the potato. The tubers come from a single plant; hence it is a mode of vegetative propagation and tubers are vegetative parts

The potato plant produces flowers for sexual reproduction. In fact, potatoes are grown in farms from seeds obtained from flowers rather than using tubers. Hence, flowers are reproductive parts of plants.
