Self-incompatibility:

  1. Is a device to prevent inbreeding
  2. Provides a biochemical block to self-fertilization.
  3. Ensures cross-fertilization.
  4. Is governed by pollen-pistil interaction
  5. Is governed by series of multiple alleles.
  6. Prevents self pollen (from the same flower or other flowers of the same plant) from fertilizing the ovules inhibiting pollen germination or pollen tube growth in the pistil.

(a) All are correct                               (b) All are wrong

(c) Only I, II, III are correct                (d) IV and V are wrong

Difficulty Level:


Which of the following options is correct?
(a) Pollination gives the guarantee of the promotion of post-pollination events that lead to fertilization
(b) The events – “from pollen deposition on stigma until pollen tubes enter the ovule" are together referred to as pollen-pistil interaction
(c) Pollen-pistil interaction is a dynamic process involving pollen recognition followed by only promotion (not rejection) of the pollen
(d) Pistil has no ability to recognize the pollen, whether right or wrong type
