Question

Ovary is said to be half inferior in which of the following conditions ?
  1. Hypogynous
  2. Perigynous
  3. Epigynous
  4. Both (b) and (c)


Solution

The correct option is B Perigynous
In hypogynous condition of a flower the sepals, petals and stamens are attached to the receptacle below the ovary. The ovary in this case is said to be superior.
In perigynous condition of a flower, the gynoecium is situated in the centre and other floral parts are located on the rim of the thalamus almost at the same level. Ovary is said to be half-inferior.
In epigynous condition of a flower, sepals, petals and stamens arise from the top of the ovary, or from a hypanthium inserted above the ovary. The ovary of an epigynous flower is inferior.
