Question

In one of the following, the seed coat is thick and hard. Which is it?


  1. gram

  2. maize

  3. bean

  4. coconut


Solution

The correct option is D

coconut


Seed coats develop from the covering of the ovules. After fertilization, when the ovules turn into seeds, the outer coverings/coats of the ovule now become the seed coats. During this process, they undergo many changes in the appearance and texture. The seed coat in mature seeds can be a paper-thin layer (groundnut, maize or peas) or it may become thick and hard (coconut, honey locust).
