  2. A leaf that contains no starch

  3. A leaf that contains chlorophyll in patches

Solution

The correct option is C

A leaf that contains chlorophyll in patches


A variegated leaf contains chlorophyll in patches, the leaf has both green and non-green parts. As the green parts contain chlorophyll they can perform photosynthesis, but the non-green parts do not contain chlorophyll, so they cannot perform photosynthesis.
