Question

___________ is an example of a gamosepalous flower.
  1. Periwinkle
  2. Magnolia
  3. Rose
  4. Mustard


Solution

The correct option is A Periwinkle
Sepals are green, leaf-like structures which are collectively called calyx. They form the first whorl of a flower from the outer to inner side. On the basis of whether the sepals are fused or free of each other, they can be classified into two types-
  • Gamosepalous- Sepals are fused with each other. Example: Hibiscus, Datura, Periwinkle.
  • Polysepalous: Sepals are free from each other. Example: Rose, Magnolia, Mustard.
