Consider the following:

3. Turmeric
Which among the above is / are rhizomes?

Answer: [B] Only 2 & 3

Ginger and turmeric are common examples of rhizomes. During favourable condition, aerial shorts develop from the terminal buds and establish new plants, which in turn produce new rhizomes. Rhizomes show perennation, that is – they live through the years.
