Question

Regarding the assertion and reason, select the correct option:
Assertion [A]: There is a direct correlation between plant diversity and presence of pollinators.
Reason [R]: Pollination is the process by which pollen is transferred to the stigma through pollinators like bees, birds and wind.
  1. A is incorrect but R is correct
  2. Both A and R are incorrect
  3. A is correct but R is incorrect
  4. Both A and R are correct and R explains A
  5. Both A and R are correct but R does not explain A


Solution

The correct option is D Both A and R are correct and R explains A
The assertion is true that there is a direct correlation between diversity and the presence of pollinators because pollinators like bees and birds travel from plant to plant for feeding on berries or collection of nectar and in turn, facilitate pollination by transferring pollen from one plant to the other. This increases cross-pollination and ensures a high degree of diversity in new saplings.
