Activity 8.7 Class 10 ScienceObservation: Two cotyledons of the seed become distinguishable with the formation of radicle and plumule.

Explanation: On soaking water, a seed breaks its dormancy and start growing. A small white tip emerges out from the seed which we call Radicle. Radicle, later on, develop into the root.
