Best answer

Ans : (a) NAA, 2, 4-D

Explanation :

NAA (a-Naphthalene acetic acid) and 2,4 D (2, 4 dichlorophenoxy acetic acid) are synthetic auxins. Normally, auxins inhibit flowering. In lettuce, it delays flowering and the plants can be kept in their vegetative phase for longer periods of time. In litchi and pineapple, however, application of auxin promotes flowering.
