C
Cotton/Malvaceae

D
Taraxacum/Compositae

Solution

The correct option is D Taraxacum/Compositae
The dispersal of seeds, as well as fruits, takes place by wind, water, and animals. Sometimes there may be some specialized mechanism of spore dispersal. The single-seeded fruits of members of family Asteraceae hold hair like persistent sepals called pappus. They carry the seed to a great distance in the form of a parachute, e.g. Taraxacum.
So the correct answer is 'Taraxacum/Compositae'.
