Which of the following statement is incorrect?

Option: 2

The transport of pollen grains from the anther to the stigma occurs within the same flower during this sort of cross-pollination.


Option: 3

Bud pollination refers to pollination that occurs when the flower is in the bud stage.


Option: 4

Some plants have cleistogamous flowers, which are flowers that never open.

The statement in Option 2 is incorrect because it confuses the definition of cross-pollination. Cross-pollination refers to transferring pollen grains from the anther of one flower to the stigma of another flower, not within the same flower. In cross-pollination, pollen is transferred between different plants of the same species, promoting genetic diversity. Hence, option 2 becomes the correct answer for this question.
