Solution :-

Perisperm Pericarp
It serves as the nucleus of the seed. From the ovary wall develops a
covering for the fruit.
Seeds contain it. It is a component of fruit.
Usually, it is dry. There is no moisture or flesh in it.
Many times, seeds do not function
Protection and nutrition are also
provided by this covering
Seeds without perisperm are rare. Every fruit contains this.
