Test: Sexual Reproduction in Flowering Plants - 2 - Question 13

In nature, inbreeding and out breeding of plants is regulated by------?

Detailed Solution for Test: Sexual Reproduction in Flowering Plants - 2 - Question 13

Inbreeding occurs in intraspecific flowers as contain same kinds of genetic materials. Outbreeding takes place between interspecific flowers having different kinds of genetic materials.

Test: Sexual Reproduction in Flowering Plants - 2 - Question 14

Continued self-pollination results in inbreeding depression as they------?

Detailed Solution for Test: Sexual Reproduction in Flowering Plants - 2 - Question 14

Self-pollination involves transfer of pollen grain from anther to stigma of same flower. The two fusing gametes are genetically similar to each other as they are produced by same plant. Continued self –pollination results into pure line and breeding depression.

Test: Sexual Reproduction in Flowering Plants - 2 - Question 15

Abundant occurrence of fossilized pollen grain is due to resistant: 

Detailed Solution for Test: Sexual Reproduction in Flowering Plants - 2 - Question 15

Large amount of fossilized pollen grain are found during excavation process of older parts due to tough covering of Sporopollenin that make the outer wall of pollen grain, exine. This substance cannot be hydrolyzed by any enzyme known.

Test: Sexual Reproduction in Flowering Plants - 2 - Question 16

Which kind of embryo is shown in figure below?  

Detailed Solution for Test: Sexual Reproduction in Flowering Plants - 2 - Question 16

The zygote divides mitotically many times to form large number of cells. These cells arrange into different shape. The most common embryo is Globular embryo.

Test: Sexual Reproduction in Flowering Plants - 2 - Question 17

The cleavage of the zygote or earlier stage of its development into two or more units to form many embryo is called as?

Detailed Solution for Test: Sexual Reproduction in Flowering Plants - 2 - Question 17

Zygote may divides into two or more parts to develop multiple embryos. The formation of more than one embryo inside the same ovule by cleavage is called cleavage polyembryony.

Embryo of certain monocotyledonous seeds contain additional cotyledon besides one present in al monocots. This cotyledon represents the evolutionary stage of cotyledon formation from one to two.

Test: Sexual Reproduction in Flowering Plants - 2 - Question 21

A typical angiospemic embryo sac is though 8 nucleate is 7-celled. 8 nuclei includes______.

Detailed Solution for Test: Sexual Reproduction in Flowering Plants - 2 - Question 21

The female gametophyte (embryo sac) develops from a single functional megaspore. This megaspore undergoes three successive mitotic divisions to form eight nucleate embryo sacs.

The first mitotic division in the megaspore forms two nuclei. One nucleus moves towards the micropylar end while the other nucleus moves towards the chalazal end. Then, these nuclei divide at their respective ends and re-divide to form eight nucleate stages. As a result, there are four nuclei each at both the ends i.e., at the micropylar and the chalazal end in the embryo sac. At the micropylar end, out of the four nuclei only three differentiate into two synergids and one egg cell. Together they are known as the egg apparatus. Similarly, at the chalazal end, three out of four nuclei differentiates as antipodal cells. The remaining two cells (of the micropylar and the chalazal end) move towards the centre and are known as the polar nuclei, which are situated in a large central cell. Hence, at maturity, the female gametophyte appears as a 7-celled structure, though it has 8 nucleate.

Test: Sexual Reproduction in Flowering Plants - 2 - Question 22

The major approach towards the crop improvement programme is______.

Detailed Solution for Test: Sexual Reproduction in Flowering Plants - 2 - Question 22
