Answers (1)


Stem thorns actually develop from the axillary buds, not the terminal buds. Thorns are sharp, pointed structures found on certain plants, and they arise from the axils of leaves. They serve various purposes, including protection against herbivores. Terminal buds are found at the tips of stems and branches and are involved in the elongation of the stem. Hence, the correct answer is option 2.
