Answer :

No, the flowers pollinated by the winds are not as attractive as the flowers pollinated by the insects.


• The insect-pollinated flowers need to be attractive.

• The insects get attracted to the flowers with bright and beautiful.

• The flower should have nectar because insects are attractive towards nectar.

• This attraction helps the flower in getting pollinated.

• The flowers that are pollinated by wind do not need such an attraction.

• Wind by blowing easily transfers the pollen grain to the stigma without any attractions.

• Hence, in insect-pollinated flower, the flowers should be attractive in order to achieve pollination. Whereas wind-pollinated flowers do not need to be attractive.
