# Solve this: Q.  How many meiotic divisions are required to produce 40 seeds in the Capsella plant (1)50                          (2) 40                                     (3) 80                                       (4) 20

Dear student,

n+n/4 (n represents the number of seeds) division rule is the rule for determining the number of meiotic divisions required to produce seeds in case of angiospermous plants.

According to this rule, the Total number of meiotic divisions required to produce 40 seeds in Capsella plant will be equal to 50 (40 + 40/4).

Hence, option (1) is correct.
