  • In dicots, the seeds bear two cotyledons or seed leaves while in monocots, the seed bears a single cotyledon. 
  • The roots help in holding the plant firmly to the soil and also absorb water and minerals from the soil, the stem conducts the water, minerals and food from the roots and leaves to the other parts of the plant respectively.
