Q Name the reproductive parts of a flowering plant.A: Female parts: a) stigmab) stylec) ovary d) ovule(also called carpel or pistil)Male parts: a) Antherb) filament (stalk)(also called stamen)(The flower of a tomato plant has both male and female parts. Papaya plant has the male and female parts in separate flowers)
Q What is the sepal?A: The sepal is a leaf that protects a flower as a bud. When the flower opens, the sepals may fall off or remain as a ring underneath the petals.
