Answer: (4)

The most common form of ovules is anatropous ovule, which occurs in more than 80% of angiospermic families. The ovule body is turned 180 ° and micropyle comes close to the funiculus. Chalaza and micropyle lie in the straight line but hilum is at 90 °to the micropyle. The micropyle, then, is close to funiculus. There is also a ridge in the ovule, as the ovule body is fused on one with the funiculus.
