Your Answer
A
Corm of gladiolus
Your Answer
B
Stolons of strawberry
Correct Answer
C
Spines of prickly pear
Your Answer
D
Rhizome of ginger

Solution

The correct option is C Spines of prickly pear
In xerophytic plants like prickly pear or Opuntia, the leaves are modified into spines and the stem is modified as a flat, green fleshy structure called cladode for storing water.

Rhizome and corms are underground stem modifications for storing food.

A stolon is an aerial stem modification growing slightly above the soil suface giving rise to roots at the nodal regions.
