Highly reduced female gametophyte of angiosperm
(a)
Ovary
(b)
Embryo sac
(c)
EGG cell
(d)
Synergids
Correct answer: (b) 
Solution: 
In angiosperms, the gametophytic generation is highly reduced. Female gametophyte exists in the form of an embryosac which is a 7 celled,  nucleated structure. It is haploid since it develops from a haploid megaspore which forms as a result of meiosis of the megaspore mother cell.
So, the correct answer is, 'Embryo sac'.
