Correct Answer: Option(c)
Solution: Ligula means strap-shaped. In members of Compositae (sunflower), a ligule is the strap-shaped, an elongated tongue of the corolla of a ray floret or ligulate flower. Lingule is the hairy outgrowth at the junction of the ray of florets formed by the fusion of petals in a strap-shaped structure towards the upper end.
