Solution

  1. In a dicot leaf, stomata are generally absent on the upper epidermis but are present on the lower epidermis. Thus, the student must have thought that he has placed slide upside down.
  2. According to teacher, the section was placed rightly, thus the given section must be of monocot leaf.
  3. It is because in monocot leaf stomata are present on both upper and lower epidermis.
