Correct Answer : A.
In mango and coconut, the fruit is known as drupe. Drupe develops from monocarpellary superior ovaries. In mango, the pericarp is differentiated into an outer thin epicarp, middle fleshy edible mesocarp and an inner stony hard endocarp. In coconut, the mesocarp is represented by the fibrous part.
