Correct Answer: D
Solution :[d] Apomixis is an asexual type of reproduction, in which the plant embryos grow from egg cells without being fertilised by pollen, the male part of the plant. Parthenogenesis is a form of asexual reproduction, in which growth and development of embryos occur without fertilisation. In plants, parthenogenesis means development of an embryo from an unfertilised egg cell and is a component process of apomixis. The asexual development of a sporophyte from a cell or celts of the gametophyte other than the egg.
