Remember the important information to the answer the questions given below.

Pedicel: Small stick-like structure that holds the flower on the stem.

Thalamus: A disc-like structure situated at the top of the pedicel and holds all the parts of a flower.

Calyx: Outermost cup-shaped green structure on a thalamus.

Sepals: Small leafy units of calyx.

Corolla: The second inner whorl of white or colored leafy structures placed just next to calyx.

Petals: White or colored leafy parts of a corolla.

Stamen: Male reproductive organ of a flower.

Filament: Fine thread-like portion of a stamen, which holds the anther.

Anther: The pollen case situated at the top of a filament.

Pollen grains: Fine granular cells in which develops the male gametes.

Carpel: Unit of gynoecium; the female reproductive organ of a flower.

Androecium: The third inner whorl of a flower, composed of male reproductive organs.

Gynoecium: The inner most whorl of a flower composed of female reproductive organs.

Ovary: The swollen base of a carpel, that holds one or more ovules within it.

Style: Long tubular structure emerging from the top of the ovary.

Stigma: Broader apex of the style, which catches the pollen grains during pollination.
