(a)Unisexual- Unisexual refers to the flowers of the plant which have only one sex organ, i.e. either androecium or gynoecium.
    
     Diecious- Diecious refers to the plant as a whole and is the plant that has all similar unisexual flowers, i.e. all male unisexual or all female unisexual flowers
 
     Unisexual and dioecious- Male and female flowers are borne on separate plants.
 
      Unisexual, dioecious or heterothallic- Male and female flowers are present on separate plant body
       (heterothallic and dioecious are same- used to describe unisexual condition)
 
(b) meiocyte is a type of cell that differentiates into a gamete through the process of meiosis.
