Plant Reproduction Pollination Class 5
Plant Reproduction Pollination Class 5 Worksheets / question and answers for CBSE / ICSE board students.
Define asexual Reproduction?
Plants reproduce asexually by growing from the leaves, stems, or roots of their parent plants.
Define Sexual Reproduction?
Seeds are responsible for new plant growth. Seeds come from fruits which form from flowers so it is fair to say that the flower is the main part of sexual reproduction.
What are the different parts of a flower?
The main parts of a flower are the sepals, petals, stamens, and pistils.
What is sepals?
The outermost parts of a flower are called sepals; the sepals form the calyx, which is the flower’s outermost circle.
What are petals?
The petals of a flower are the most attractive part. Flower petals can be colored, shaped, and sized in different ways. They also attract insects. They form the corolla of the flower.
What is stamen?
The male part of a flower is the stamen. Each flower has many little stalks with swollen tops inside its petals. They are called stamens. Stamens consist of two parts: a filament and an anther. The filament is the stalk of the stamen and the swollen top is the anther.

What is Pistil ?
Pistils are female parts of flowers. They consist of three parts: stigma, style, and ovary.
The stigma is the top part of a pistil.
The style is the middle part of a pistil.
An ovary is a swollen portion of the pistil at the bottom.
What is unisexual flower?
The flowers containing only one reproductive organ, either male or female, are called unisexual flowers.
What are bisexual flowers?
Bisexual flowers have both male and female reproductive organs.
What is pollination and what are its types?
Pollination is the transfer of pollen grains from the anther of a stamen to the stigma of the pistil. There are two types of pollination: self-pollination and cross-pollination.
Define self pollination?
The transfer of pollen grains from an anther to a stigma of the same flower is called self-pollination.
Define cross pollination?
The transfer of pollen grains from an anther of one plant to the stigma of another plant of the same species is called cross pollination.
What are the ways of pollination?
Pollination occurs in a number of ways: the pollen grains are transferred from the anther to the stigma by insects, wind, water, etc.
