    Answer

    Keys are of two types- indented and bracketed keys. Indented key provides a sequence of choices between two or more statements while in bracketed key; a pair of contrasting characters are used.

    (i) Indented key to identify different species of Rhododendron.

    1. Leaves evergreen

    2. leaves densely hairy below, orange or white hair; flower

    appears to have separate petals

    ………………………. Rhododendron groenlandicum

    2. hair absent on leaves, flower has five petals fused in a shallow

    tube

    ………………………. Rhododendron maximus

    1. Leaves deciduous

    3. pink flowers with two free petals and three fused petals

    ………………………. Rhododendron canadense

    3. white to pink flowers with all petals fused together
