In albuminous seeds, food is stored in ......... and in exalbuminous seeds, food is stored in ............ (1) Endosperm, cotyledons (2) Cotyledons, cotyledons (3) Cotyledons, endosperm (4) Endosperm, endosperm

Answer: (1)

The majority of the monocotyledonous seeds are albuminous seeds, i.e., they have thick, swollen endosperms for nourishment. The endosperm is not completely consumed during embryo development, and it is the nourishing tissues in seeds.

In beans, peas, gram seeds, the endosperm is completely absorbed during development and food is stored in two cotyledons. They are called exalbuminous seeds.
