Question 1 Report
Which is the correct order in an evolutionary sequence for the following plants groups?
The correct order in an evolutionary sequence for the following plant groups is: Bacteria → algae → mosses → ferns → seed plants. This sequence represents the evolution of plant life on Earth, starting with the earliest forms of bacteria that lived in the water. Over time, algae evolved from bacteria and were the first photosynthetic organisms that produced oxygen as a byproduct of their metabolism. Mosses evolved from algae and were the first land plants to develop structures that allowed them to survive on dry land. Ferns evolved from mosses and were the first plants to develop vascular tissue, which allowed them to grow taller and transport water and nutrients more efficiently. Finally, seed plants evolved from ferns and were the first plants to produce seeds, which provided a protective covering for the embryo and allowed for more efficient reproduction and dispersal. Therefore, the correct option is: Bacteria → algae → mosses → ferns → seed plants.
