Which statement is correct for compositae?

  1. 5-lobed stamens
  2. Syngenesious stamens
  3. Basal ovule
  4. Ligulate ray florets
Correct Answer: Option(a)
Solution: In compositae, the corolla is sympetalous with mostly 3-5 lobes. The androecium consists of 4 or 5 stamens that are united by their anthers and are adnate to the corolla tube or epigynous zone, alternating with the lobes. The gynoecium consists of a single compound pistil of 2 carpels and an inferior ovary with one locule and one basal ovule.
