Which of the following best describes the reproductive life cycles of ferns and angiosperms? angiosperms need moisture to bring together male and female gametes to form a seed, while ferns rely on the formation of pollen tubes. both angiosperms and ferns depend on wind or animals to transfer male gametes to the female gametes during sexual reproduction. the dominant sporophyte phase in the life cycles of both ferns and angiosperms includes the formation of leaves, roots, and stems. ferns produce separate male and female gametophytes for reproduction, while angiosperms develop both gametophytes in the same flower.


1) C. Gymnosperms are mainly adapted for wind pollination; angiosperms are mainly adapted for animal pollination. This is the best answer, because both types were reversed by the others. Gymnos has โ€œnakedโ€ seed cones, but Angios has protected fruit seeds. Thus the Angios relied on animals to eat the fruit and to pollinate, but Gymnos relied on wind to pollinate the earth. Gymnos first came to Earth and later developed Angios.

2) C. Cuticle. This is a waxy coating that helps retain water. The main water losses are through stomata.

3) C. Stomata

4) B. Non-vascular

5) B. Gravity

These answers were explained in the questions I had only answered before. So look at those for explanations.
