Solution :-

Vegetative propagation is defined as an asexual mode of reproduction in which new plants are obtained from the vegetative parts of the plant. It does not include the production of seeds or spores for new plants to propagate. Vegetative parts of plants include rhizomes, tubers, runners, etc. They can be used as reproductive organs to grow new plants.
Some of the examples of vegetative propagation are:
● Eyes of potato:
The surface of the potato has many buds on it called eyes. Each of these eyes, when buried in the ground, becomes a new plant that is identical to the mother plant.

● Leaf buds of Bryophyllum:
Bryophyllum plant leaves have multiple adventitious buds on their edges. These shoots have the ability to grow into tiny plants when the leaves break off the plant and come in contact with moist soil.
