Q17. Select the wrong statement:

4. Thelytoky is seen in rotifers.

Solution:

The arrhenotoky is a form of parthenogenesis in which the unfertilized eggs develop into males. E.g., Rotifers

The type of parthenogenesis in which females are produced from unfertilized eggs is known as thelytoky.

Cleidoic eggs are those eggs, which have a protective shell, and are laid out of water.
The shell is porous to air, and maybe flexible or calcareous (hard). The eggs contain all the food the embryo needs to develop into a hatchling.
