DIRECTIONS: Read the passage(s) given below and answer the questions that follow. Passage- The transfer of pollen from another to the stigma of a flower is called pollination. If the pollen lands on the stigma of the same flower it is called self-pollination. When the pollen of a flower lands on the stigma of another flower of the same plant, or that of a different plant of the same kind, it is called cross-pollination. Which of the following can carry pollen grains?
(a) wind.
(b) water.
(c) both wind and water.
(d) none of these.

Correct Answer(c) both wind and water.


Pollination is done either by biotic agents like insects, birds, and bats or by abiotic agents like wind and water.

Pollination is the transfer of male gametes onto the female gametes, while fertilization is the fusion of these two gametes. It is the process in which the nuclei of the female gamete and male gamete unite together in the ovary of the flower to form a diploid zygote.
