Solution

The correct option is D anchorage
The primary function of a leaf is to perform photosynthesis. The leaves of some plants are modified to perform functions other than photosynthesis. In onion and garlic, the leaves store food material and become fleshy. The leaves of Bryophyllum develop buds that form new plants. This is called vegetative propagation, where in the vegetative parts of a plant like root, stem and leaves bear vegetative propagules that develop into a new plant.
The plant organ that provides anchorage to the plant is root.
