Choose the correct answer from the options given below:

A. ii and iv

B. iv only

C. iii and iv

D. i and iv

Answer :

I. Both angiosperm and humans remain active during their reproductive phase. So, eggs of both are formed many times during their lifetime not just once.


II. Human eggs are not stationery. Once the egg is released from the ovary. It reaches the uterus.


III. In angiosperms both the gametes are non-motile in nature.
