Best Answer

Explanation :

  • Phyllotaxy is the arrangement of leaves on stem branches. 
  • There are 3 forms of phyllotaxy present. There are three types: opposing, whorled, and spiral, as well as alternate. 
  • In the alternate kind, a leaf appears at each node in a different order. Examples are china rose, sunflower, grass. 
  • In the opposing kind, each node produces a pair of leaves that are opposite to one other. Calotropis and guava are two examples.

  • As a result, the right response is 'Calotropis.'
