(c) be weaker (d) be healthier
Please find below the solution to the asked query
The eyes of the tuber are nodes. From these nodes new growth begins. The stems growing from each node are called sprouts. These eyes are vegetative propagules (any portion of plant which helps in vegetative reproduction).
So, if all the 'eyes' of a potato tuber are taken out and it is sown in the ground normally, new plants will not emerge . Hence,option (a) is correct.
