Rearrange the following words and match them to the picture above:
(i) THNARE (ii) NTMEFILA (iii) LYSTE (iv) LEPTA (v) STIMAG
a – (iv), b - (i), c – (ii), d – (v), e – (iii)
The correct rearrangement is as follows
(i) THNARE - ANTHER (ii) NTMEFILA – FILAMENT (iii) LYSTE - STYLE (iv) LEPTA - PETAL (v) STIMAG – STIGMA
The correct match is
a – (iv) PETAL, b - (i) ANTHER, c – (ii) FILAMENT, d – (v) STIGMA, e – (iii) STYLE
The Anther and Filament are part of the STAMEN – the male part of the flower. The Stigma and Style along with the Ovary make up the CARPEL – the female part of the flower.
You can recognize the male part by the presence of yellow/red pollen on the Anther. The filament bears the anther. You can recognize the stigma by the sticky round head. The style is usually thicker than the filament. You can also recognize the female parts by their central location (the innermost whorl) which is meant to help in pollination.
The petal is the most visible part of the flower and is meant to attract insects.
