    Flowers are the reproductive parts of the plant. A typical flower consists of the following parts:

    (i) Sepals: These are green leaf like structures which help in the preparation of food.

    (ii) Petals: These are coloured big leaf like structures in the flower which help in the pollination.

    (iii) Stamens: Stamens are the male reproductive parts of the flowers. There are two parts of stamen — (a) anther and (b) filament. Anther contains pollen grains which have male gametes.

    (iv) Pistil: Pistil is the female reproductive part of the flowers. There are three main parts of a pistil— (a) stigma (b) style and (c) ovary. The ovary contains one or more ovules. The female gametes or the eggs are formed in an ovule.
