The given figures (A & B) show two types of compound leaves. Choose the option which identity the correct compound leaf and their example (c).
A. A - Pinnately compound leaf, C - Neem
B. A - Palmately compound leaf, C - Neem
C. B- Pinnately compound leaf, C - Silk cotton
D. B- Palmately compound leaf, C - Silk cotton
Correct Answer : A.
The given figure shows types of compound leaves. A compound leaf consisting of several or many distinct parts (leaflets) joined to a single stem. They are of two types - pinnately (figure A) and palmately compound leaves (figure B). In pinnately compound leaves, a number of leaflets are present on a common axis, the rachis, which represents the midrib of the leaf as in neem. In palmately compound leaves, the leaflets are attached at a common point i.e. at the tip of petiole as in silk cotton.
