Solution :-

Both gymnosperms and angiosperms bear seeds, but they are classified separately because the seeds of gymnosperms are naked i.e., they lack any kind of covering around them, while angiosperms are covered mostly by fruits. The presence or lack of coverage leads to very different methods of dispersion and fertilization process.
