Answer :

The arrangement of ovules within the ovary is known as placentation.


When the placenta is axial and the ovules are attached to it in a multilocular ovary, the placentaion is said to be axile. Examples - china rose, tomato and lemon.

When the ovules are borne on central axis and septa are absent, the placentation is called free central. Examples - Dianthus and Primrose.
