Ans. (d) somatic embryogenesis.
Sol: Micropropagation is the latest method of obtaining a large number of plantlets from plant tissue culture. It is called micropropagation because of the minute size of the propagules. It involves repeated subculture of the explant by changing the medium so as to form a large number of plantlets from that single explant. Somatic embryogenesis i.e., developing embryos from somatic cells is one of the techniques of micropropagation.
