Solution

The correct option is D Pomegranate
Parthenocarpy is the phenomenon behind most seedless fruits. Parthenocarpy is fruiting without the union of a male and a female egg cell. The lack of fertilization means that there are no seeds in the fruit. If there are seeds, they are not viable and are not capable of germinating. Parthenocarpy is not found beneficial in only one type of fruits, that is pomegranate. It is because seeds are the edible parts in this fruit.
