Which of the following statement is correct about pollination?
(a) The wind is not an agent of pollination
(b) Insects can’t pollinate
(c) Fruit formation occurs after pollination
(d) Fertilization occurs before pollination
I got this question in class test.
Question is from Ecosystem Services topic in portion Ecosystem of Biology – Class 12
Correct choice is (b) Insects can’t pollinate
To explain I would say: The act of transfer of pollen grains from the male (part) anther to a female part (stigma) of a plant is known as pollination. After successful pollination, the process of fertilization occurs which leads to the formation of fruits and seeds.
