Which of the following statements is false?

I: Vallisneria and Hydrilla are fresh water plants while sea-grasses (e.g. Zostera) are marine plant.
II: Pollination in water lily / Lotus (Nymphea) and Eichhornia (water hyacinth) takes place by insects.
III: In majority of aquatic plants flowers emerge above the level of water and are pollinated by insects or wind.
IV: In most of the water pollinated species, pollen grains are protected from wetting due to presence of mucilaginous covering.
V: In hydrophilous plants pollen grains are spherical.
