Solution

The word ‘Phanerogamae’ comprises the words ‘phaneros’ meaning ‘visible’ and ‘gamos’ implying ‘reproduction’. They show characteristics like-

  • well-differentiated and visible reproductive tissues that ultimately make seeds.
  • seeds consists of the embryo along with stored food which helps in the initial growth of the embryo during germination

Phanerogams are further subdivided into gymnosperms and angiosperms on the basis of seeds which are enclosed in a fruit or not. Gymnosperms produce seeds which are not enclosed by fruit and hence are called naked seeds whereas angiosperms produce seeds which are enclosed in fruits.
