A new plant forms from a stem that broke off of the parent plant. This is an example of ______.

  1. a. nodal cloning
  2. b. exocytosis
  3. c. asexual reproduction
  4. d. tissue culture propagation

Summary Introduction

Introduction: Asexual reproduction in flowering plants is one of the modes of reproduction where a single cell is divided into two identical daughter cells. Same parent gives rise to two individual clones. Vegetative reproduction is mode of asexual reproduction from which new shoots and roots are developed from the fragments of a parent plant. They include budding, cuttings, grafting, and air layering techniques.

Explanation

Reason for correct answer:

Asexual reproduction in flowering plants is one of the modes of reproduction where a single cell is divided into two identical daughter cells. Vegetative reproduction is mode of asexual reproduction from which new shoots and roots are developed from the fragments of a parent plant. Grafting is a type of vegetative propagation which involves the cutting of a stem of a plant and then joining it on the other plant with the help of grafting wax in order to form a new plant from a stem.

Option c. is given as “asexual reproduction”.
