Solution

The correct option is B Seven
False fruit (pseudocarp) can be defined as the fruit, which is formed from the ripened ovary along with some other parts of the flower like the base or receptacle, the perianth, etc. Pear, apple, strawberry, mulberry, fig, pineapple, jackfruit are examples of false fruit.

Mango, plum and banana are true fruits which are only formed from the ripened ovary after fertilisation.
