Identify the type
Carpel can be of two types Monocarpellary (single pistil) or Multicarpellary (more than one pistil).
In multipcarpellary the pistils may be fused called Syncarpous or pistils may be free called Apocarpous.
So the diagram (a) is Syncarpous multicarpellary (i.e., have more than one pistil fused together).
The diagram (b) is Apocarpous multicarpellary (i.e., have more than one pistil but free).
