Other questions in this quiz

2. What is the function of the tube nucleus?

  • Fuses with the micropyle to form the fruit
  • Fuses with a sperm nuclei to form the egg
  • Fuses with 2 nuclei in the ovule to form the endosperm
  • Fuses with the ovary to form the testa

3. What becomes the testa?

  • Ovary
  • Embryo sac
  • Outer integument
  • Fertilised ovule

4. What type/how many cells are produced when a mother cell undergoes meiosis?

  • Micropyles - 4
  • Microspores - 4
  • Endosperms - 3
  • Zygotes - 3

5. What is pollination?

  • The production of an egg cell
  • The production of CO2 in a plant
  • The transfer of pollen from anther to stigma
  • The transfer of pollen from stigma to anther



There are some errors in here, the Tube nucleus in the pollen grain controls the growth of the pollen tube before disintegration.

It is the generative nucleus which consists of the two male nuclei. One of these fuses with the polar nucleus to form the triploid endosperm tissues which will become the endosperm and the other fuses with the oosphere to divide by mitosis to become the embryo.
