Solution

The correct option is B Length of juvenile phase
B. Length of juvenile phase
EXPLANATION: Monocarpic flowering behaviour refers to plants which flower only once and then dies, an example being bamboo while polycarpic refers to those which can flower multiple times before dying in one life cycle, an example being mango. Here, Strobilanthus kunthiana commonly known as neelakurinji and bamboo both are monocarpic plants. But their length of juvenile phases differs, bamboo being 3-120 years while neelakurinji being 8-16 years.
So, the correct answer is B.
