Hardest layer of a pollen grain that can withstand high temeperature and harsh chemical conditions is:

  • a. Exine
  • b. Germ pore
  • c. Intine
  • d. None
a. Exine
Outer most layer of pollen grain ‘exine’ contain sporopollenin protein. It is one of the hardest compound known so far and no enzyme yet known can degrade this. 

Which of the following plant part can be preserved as fossils?

  • a. Leaves
  • b. Stem
  • c. Pollen grains

c. Pollen grains

How many cells are there in a pollen grain of most angiospermic flower during shedding?

  • a. one
  • b. two
  • c. three
  • d. four
b. two
In pollen cytoplasm to cells are there . The bigger and round cell is vegetative cell and the smaller spindle shaped cell is generative cell. Most (60%) angiospermic floweres shed their pollen grain at this two celled stage. In remaining species generative cells divide to give two gamets i.e. three celled stage.

A place in exine of pollen grains which lacks sporollenin is:

  • a. Intine
  • b. Cytoplasm
  • c. Vegtetative cell
  • d. Germ pore
d. Germ pore
From this place male gamets form pollen tube that lead to fertilization.

At which temperature pollen gains can be stored for years?

  • a. 0°C
  • b. -50°C
  • c. -196°C
  • d. -273°C
c. -196°C
Pollen banks use liquid nitrogen to keep the viability of pollen grains for years. Its temperature is-196°C

In a plant which among these is motile?

  • a. Male gamet
  • b. Female gamet
  • c. Both
  • d. None
c. Both

Transfer of pollen grain from anther to stigma is called:

  • a. Pollination
  • b. Fertilization
  • c. Inflorescence
  • d. None
a. Pollination

When transfer of pollen gain from anther to stigma occurs in the same flower, the phenomenon is called

  • a. Autogamy
  • b. Homogamy
  • c. Geitonogamy
  • d. Xenogamy
a. Autogamy
same flower: Autogamy

Same plant: Geitonogamy

Different plant: Xenogamy

In which case a plant will produce enormous number of pollen grains

  • a. Self-pollinating cleistogamous plant
  • b. Plant pollinating via birds and bees
  • c. Plant pollinating via wind
  • d. None
c. Plant pollinating via wind

Which character among these is the feature of a  wind/water pollinating flower?

  • a. Odorless flower
  • b. No nectar
  • c. colorless flower
  • d. All three
d. All three

Continued self-pollination may lead to:

  • a. Hybrid vigor
  • b. Large fruit size
  • c. Inbreed depression
  • d. None
c. Inbreed depression

Which among these donot encourage outbreeding?

  • a. Development of anther and stigma at different time
  • b. Placement of anther and stigma at a different position
  • c. Self-incompatibility
  • d. Dioceious flowers
  • e. Cleistogamous flowers
e. Cleistogamous flowers

Pollen tube enters the ovule through

  • a. Chalazal end
  • b. Micropyle
  • c. Hilum
  • d. None
b. Micropyle

Foolowing prevent contamination of unwanted pollen grain during artifical hybridisation

  • a. Emasculation of pollen grain
  • b. Bagging of flowers
  • c. Both
  • d. None
c. Both

Double ferilization includes:

  • a. Fusion of male gamet with an ovum
  • b. Fusion of one generate cell with two polar nuclei
  • c. Both
  • d. None
c. Both
During fertilization one generate cell fuses with ovuum while second generate cell fuses with two haploid polar nuclie. The former forms zygote while later one form trploid endsopermic nuclie

What is triple fusion?

  • a. Fusion of male gamet with female gamet
  • b. Fusion of male gamete with two polar nuclei
  • c. Inhibition of pollen tube by the ovary
  • d. None
b. Fusion of male gamet with two polar nuclie

  • a. Albuminous
  • b. Non-albuminous
  • c. Hollow
  • d. None
b. Non-albuminous

In some seeds like those of black-pepper and beet remnants of nucellus is also persent. This nourishing structure forms:
