Summary Introduction

To match: The each term with their suitable description.

Explanation

Ovule-c. after fertilization develops into a seed.

A part of the carpel which carries the female gametes is called the ovule. The ovule undergo fertilization to produce the seeds.

Explanation: The double fertilization that takes place in most of the flowering plants will produce a triploid cell and a zygote. They undergo mitotic division and the triploid cell develops into endosperm while the zygote will develop into an embryo sporophyte. During the maturation time of embryo, the ovules integuments will develop into a seed covering known as seed coat. Ovules undergo fertilization to produce the mature seeds and ovaries undergo fertilization to produce the fruits.

Anther - e. pollen sacs inside.

Stamens are the male reproductive part of the flower which consist of anther and filament...
