Solution

The correct option is D Solanaceae
The flowers of Solanaceae are bisexual and actinomorphic. The perianth and androecium whorls generally are pentamerous. The calyx is synsepalous. The corolla is sympetalous. The stamens are distinct and are alternate with the lobes of the corolla and adnate to the corolla tube or perigynous zone. The gynoecium has single compound pistil of two carpels, single style, and a superior ovary with 2 locules by false partitioning. Each locule has numerous axile ovules. A nectary disk is generally present around the base of the ovary. The fruit is a berry or capsule.
Thus, the correct answer is option A.
