Question

Which of the following parts of the flower are shed after fertilisation?


  1. Calyx

  2. Pedicel 

  3. Androecium 

  4. Petals 


Solution

The correct option is D

Petals 


After fertilisation, androecium or the male reproductive parts and petals of the flower are shed. Androecium provides male gametes and petals attract the pollinators. The functions of both these parts are over by the time fertilisation completes. The remaining parts like pedicel, thalamus and the calyx are retained and develop into different parts of the fruit.
