Correct option is B)



 Cross-pollination is the transfer of pollen grains from one to the stigma of another flower present on the different plants.
 Cross-pollination helps in producing a variation in offspring.
 Seeds produced by cross-pollination are viable and abundant.
 Progenies are produced healthier.
 New varieties can be created.

 It is the transfer of pollen in the same flower or different flowers grown on the same plant.
 No genetic variations.
 No evolutionary significance.
 It reduces the gene pool.

 Crossbreeding is described as the act or process of creating offspring by mating two purebred individuals who are from different breeds, variations, or even species.

 It is the technique used to pollinate and fertilize flowers with the desired type of pollen grains.
 Artificial hybridization is done by using techniques like emasculation and bagging.

Hence, the correct answer is option B
