  1. How do plants reproduce?
    Asexually

    Sexually
  2. What is asexual reproduction?
    It involves a single parent only, no gametes. no fertilisation takes place and the offspring are clones of each other and the parent plant
  3. How can asexual reproduction happen artificially?
    It happens by vegetative propagation

    The techniques include cuttings, grafting and micro propagation

    Petals
  5. Name the part labelled B

    Stamen
  6. Name the part labelled C

    Anther
  7. Name the part labelled D

    Filament
  8. Name the part labelled E

    Sepal
  9. Name the part labelled F

    Carpel
  10. Name the part labelled G

    Stigma
  11. Name the part labelled H

    Style
  12. Name the part labelled I

    Ovary
  13. What is the difference between sexual and asexual reproduction?
    Sexual reproduction is when the male sex cell and a female sex cell join together

    Asexual reproduction does not involve fertilisation and there is only one parent
  14. What is the male part of the flower called?
    It is called the stamen

    It is made up of the anther and filament
  15. What is the female part of the flower called?
    It is called the carpel

    It is made up of the stigma, style and ovary
  16. Sate the function of the sepal
    To protect the flower before it blooms
  17. State the function of the anther
    To produce pollen which is the male gamete
  18. State the function of the filament
    To help the anther get the pollen
  19. State the function of the carpel
    To make the ovary
  20. State the function of the ovary
    To produce the egg which is the female gamete
  21. State the function of the stamen
    To make the pollen
  22. State the function of the petal
    To attract insects to the flower for pollination
  23. List the five stages involved in sexual reproduction of plants
    Pollination

    Fertilisation

    Seed and Fruit Formation

    Seed and Fruit Dispersal

    Germination
  24. What is pollination?
    This is the transfer of pollen from the stamen to the carpel
  25. State two ways in which pollen is carried from one flower to another flower
    Insects

    Wind
  26. What is fertilisation?
    This is the joining of the pollen and the egg to form a zygote
  27. State the two parts of the embryo
    1. The plumula will become the plant shoot

    2. The radicle will become the plant root
  28. How are seeds dispersed?
    Wind eg. dandelions

    Animal eg. strawberry

    Water eg. water lily

    Self dispersal eg. peas
  29. What is germination?
    This is the growth of a seed to form a new plant
  30. What factors (things) are needed for germination to occur?
    HOW

    Heat

    Oxygen

    Water
