Over time, a plant pollinated by a hummingbird has developed very long, tube-like flowers. Why might the flower have adapted in this way?

A)The longer, tube-shaped flowers probably developed to keep the hummingbird from reaching and drinking the flower's nectar.

B)The longer, tube-shaped flowers probably developed so that the hummingbird must stick its head in the flower to drink the nectar.

C)The longer, tube-shaped flowers probably developed so that pollen would not fall into them as a hummingbird flies past.

D)The longer, tube-shaped flowers probably developed so that hummingbirds could land on them.(I PICK THIS)

  3. The flowers need to have the hummingbird transfer the pollen from one flower to another as it drinks the nectar. What answer does that lead you to?

  10. let's use the process of limitation: d is definitely out of the question; there's pollen already in the flower so it's not c is out; a flower needs the help of a hummingbird to pollinate the flower so it's also not a; so that leaves us with b people think about it
