The diagram shows the parts of a flowering plant.

Which part of the plant is brightly colored to help attract insects?

Which part of the plant produces the pollen?

  • AThe ovule
  • BThe petal
  • CThe stigma
  • DThe anther

What is the sticky part of the flower, which the pollen sticks to, called?

  • AThe stem
  • BThe stigma
  • CThe nectar
  • DThe petal
