(B) If both the Assertion and resaon are true but the resaon is not a Correct explaination of the assertion.
(C) If the Assertion is true but the Reason is false
(D) If both the Assertion and Reason are false.
Assertion: The megaspore mother cell divides by meiotic division to produce four spores
Resaon: Megaspore Mother Cells (MMC) are diploid and megaspores are haploid
Please find below the solution to the asked query
Option (A) is correct.
The megaspore mother cell (MMC) gets converted into megaspores (haploid) by the process of megasporogenesis. The MMC is diploid, large and contains a dense cytoplasm and a prominent nucleus. It undergoes meiosis to produce four megaspores.
