Out of the two cells of zygote, the cell near to micropyle is termed as
(a)
Terminal cell
(b)
Basal cell
(c)
Embryo cell
(d)
Zygote cell
Correct answer: (b) 
Solution: The fertilized zygote undergoes a regular sequence of divisions to form the embryo. The oospore divides to form a basal cell and a terminal embryo cell. The basal cell further divides to form suspensor cells which anchor the embryo to the endosperm for nutrition. It is located towards the micropyle and the terminal towards the chalaza.
