Question

Fruit enlargement can be induced by spraying young ovary with

Options

A) cytokinin, abscisic acid and ethylene

B) gibberellin, ethylene and abscisic acid

C) auxin, abscisic acid and ethylene

D) auxin, cytokinin and gibberellin


The correct answer is D.

Explanation:

Auxin is a plant hormone which causes the elongation of cells in shoots and is involved in regulating plant growth. Cytokinins are a class of plant growth substances (phytohormones) that promote cell division, or cytokinesis, in plant roots and shoots.
Gibberellins are plant hormones that regulate growth and influence various developmental processes, including stem elongation, germination, dormancy, flowering, sex expression, enzyme induction, and leaf and fruit senescence.
