Milky water of green Coconut is
(a)
Liquid chalaza
(b)
Liquid nucellus
(c)
Liquid/ free nuclear endosperm
(d)
Liquid female gametophyte.
Correct answer: (c) 
Solution: The milky water of coconut is the free nuclear Endosperm which is more common and found in 56% of angiospermic families. During the development of a nuclear type of endosperm, the primary endosperm mother cell divides by free nuclear divisions, and these divisions are not followed by cell wall formation. Thus, the free nuclei remain in the cytoplasm of the embryo sac and this is seen as free nuclear or liquid endosperm of the coconut.
So, the correct answer is C.
