What do the male and female gametophytes of flowering plants produce?

  1. Megaspores; Eggs
  2. Eggs; Sperm
  3. Sperm; Microspores
  4. Sperm; Eggs
Correct Answer: Option(d)
Solution:
  • Pollen grains represent the highly reduced haploid male gametophyte generation in flowering plants, consisting of just two or three cells when released from the anthers. Their role is to deliver twin sperm cells to the embryo sac to undergo fusion with the egg and central cell.
  •  The female gametophyte of flowering plants, which produces the two female gametes – the egg cell and central cell – for double-fertilization by the two sperm cells of the male gametophyte

So, the correct answer is 'Sperm;Eggs'.
