Solution :-

Microsporangia are surrounded by a thin layer called the tapetum. Multinucleated and polyploidy tapetal cells make up the tissue. Pollen grains develop as a result of them. Ubisch bodies are found in these cells and contribute to the ornamentation of the microspores and pollen grains. Sporopollenin is a substance produced by the Ubisch bodies of the tapetal cells. This substance is present on the exine layer of pollen grains. A spiny appearance is attributed to the exine of pollen grains due to the presence of this compound.
