- Male flowers
- Staminate flowers
- Both of (A) and (B)
- Pistillate flowers
Correct Answer: Option(c)
Solution: Flowers which have only stamens are called male flowers or staminate flowers. In the typical flower each flower has both carpels and stamens. In some species, however, the flowers are unisexual with only carpels or stamens. (monoecious with both types of flowers found on the same plant; dioecious with the two types of flower found only on different plants). A flower with only stamens is called as androecious. A flower with only carpels is called as gynoecious.A flower having only functional stamens and lacking functional carpels is called as a staminate flower or (inaccurately) male. A plant with only functional carpels is called as pistillate. Therefore, the correct answer is option C.
