‘Delicious apples’ can’t be propagated through_____________

A. Stem

B. Leaf

C. Seed

D. Tissue culture

I have been asked this question in an interview.

I’d like to ask this question from DNA Mutation topic in section DNA Mutation, DNA Repair, Transposable Elements of Cytogenetics

Correct choice is C. Seed

The explanation: Delicious apple was produced first as a somatic mutation within a branch and was since propagated vegetatively. As somatic mutations don’t affect germ cells, it can’t be propagated through seeds.
