Is the seedling shown on the right a monocot or eudicot? How can you tell?

Chapter 29, Problem 3CT, Is the seedling shown on the right a monocot or eudicot? How can you tell?

Summary Introduction

To determine: Whether the given seedling is a monocot or a eudicot.

Concept introduction:  A part of the carpel which carries female gametes is called an ovule. Ovules undergo fertilization to produce mature seeds. The seeds mainly consist of three parts – an embryo, nutritive tissue or food storage, and the seed covering called as seed coat. Seeds can be classified into two types depending upon their number of cotyledons – monocot seeds and dicot seeds. The seeds containing only one cotyledon are called monocot seeds while the seeds containing two cotyledons are called dicot seeds. The primary shoot (which is not protected by coleoptiles) that consists of two cotyledons is called a eudicot seedling.

Explanation
The given seedling shown is the best example of a monocot.

Monocots and eudicots differ from each other in the respect that monocots consist of one cotyledon and are protected by a rigid sheath called coleoptiles. Eudicots, on the other hand, consist of two cotyledons and are not protected by coleoptiles.

The given image of the seedling is a monocot because they have single coleoptiles emerging from the seed...
