(iii) that develops into an endosperm in an albuminous seed.
(iv) through which the pollen tube grains entry into the embryo sac.
(v) that attaches the ovule to the placenta.
(b) Describe the characteristic features of wind pollinated flowers.
(a) Draw a diagrammatic sectional view of the female reproductive system of human and label the parts:

(b) Characteristics of wind pollinated flowers:

(b) Changes hapenning in ovary and uterus during menstrual cycle are caused by change in the levels of pituitary and ovarian hormones.
After menstrual phase gonadotropin i.e., Luteinising hormone (LH) and follicular stimulating hormone (FSH) are released from pituitary. Their level gradually increases during follicular phase and it stimulates development of follicles and secretion of estrogen by growing follicles.
Both LH and FSH attain peak on 13th & 14th day.
Rapid secretion LH causes ovulation on day 14.
During luteal phases Graafian follicle changes to corpus luteum which secretes Progesterone Progesterone maintains endometrium which is necessary for
