    B)  Stolon

    C)  Bulbils            

    D)  Sucker

    Correct Answer: C

    Solution :

    Agave species are popular ornamental plants. Each rosette is monocarpic and grows slowly or flowers only once. During flowering, a tall stem or "mast" grows from the centre of the leaf rosette and bears a large number of shortly tubular flowers. After development of the fruit, the original plant dies but suckers are frequently produced from the base of the stem which becomes new plants. It is a common misconception that Agaves are a cactus. Hence, the correct option is [c].
