    Answer

    Racemose inflorescence 1) Younger flowers are present at the tip while older flowers are arranged at the base of this inflorescence. Such an arrangement is called acropetal succession. 2) The main axis in racemose inflorescence continues to grow and produce flowers laterally.

    Cymose inflorescence (1) Younger flowers are present at the base of the inflorescence, while older flowers are present at the top. Such an arrangement is called basipetal succession. 2) The main axis in cymose inflorescence has limited growth, which later terminates into a flower.
