# A flower has 12 parts. Is it a dicot or a monocot?

##### 1 Answer

Could be both, dicot or monocot. We need more clues in order to decide.

#### Explanation:

- Dicot has 3 or multiple of 3
- Monocot has 4-5 or multiple of 4-5

Since 12 is a multiple of 3 and 4, we can't decide by this method alone.
