Solution

The correct option is B Pea seeds are dicotyledonous.
  • Seeds which get divided into two equal halves are called dicotyledonous, i.e., they have two cotyledons.
  • Seeds like pea, beans, etc., are dicots and which when soaked in water can easily be split into two halves.
  • Whereas seeds like rice, wheat, etc., are monocots having only single cotyledon.
