S Sonika

The fruits are formed from the ovary of a flower after fertilisation. Such fruits that develop from the ovary are called true fruits. On the other hand, fruits formed from any part of the flower other than ovary are called false fruits. Apple is called a false fruit because it develops from the thalamus and not from the ovary. 

The parts of flower that take part in fruit formation are ovary, thalamus etc.
