Solution :-

The anther and stigma of chasmogamous flowers are exposed for pollination. Cleistogamous flowers are incapable of cross-pollination. Therefore, only self-pollination is caused by these closed flowers. During the dehiscence process of cleistogamous flowers, anthers dehisce into closed flowers. As a result, pollen grains are exposed to stigma. Therefore, it is impossible for crosspollination to occur, such as Oxalis and Viola.
