Question

Identify the mismatch in the following pairs


  1. Apocarpous -  free carpels

  2. Syncarpous -  fused carpels

  3. Carpel - ovary, style and stigma

  4. Pistil - microsporophyll


Solution

The correct option is D

Pistil - microsporophyll


If a flower consists of  two or more carpels, the carpels may be free or apocarpous as in lotus or syncarpous, i.e., fused as seen in mustard or tomato. Gynoecium or pistil is the female reproductive whorl with carpels as their units. Carpels are further divided into an ovary, style and stigma. The pistil is also traditionally known as megasporophyll. The anthers on the other hand are called microsporophylls.
