(i) The pistil is the female part of a flower. A pistil is made up of three parts: stigma, style and ovary. The top part of a pistil is called stigma. Stigma is very sticky so that pollens can stick to it. The middle part of a pistil is called style. It is a tube which connects stigma to ovary. The swollen part at the bottom of the pistil is called ovary. The ovary contains tiny, egg- like structures called ovules.

(ii) The transfer of pollen grains from anther of a stamen to the stigma of a pistil is called pollination.

(iii) The agents of pollination are insects, wind, water and birds.
