Can someone please tell me what the answer is to this verbal question:

Horticulturalists must take into account many factors when planning the reproduction of plants. Propagation by seed is the most common method employed as it is relatively easy and has a good expected rate of germination, although this can drop if the seed has been packaged for more than a year. Many seeds can remain viable for up to 5 years if properly stored, as their protective coats prevent sprouting until ideal growing conditions exist. External conditions can be manipulated in order to bring seeds out of dormancy and hasten germination. However, even in optimal conditions, some seeds are reluctant to sprout.

Q: The reproduction of flora involves many aspects for horticulturalists to consider

True, False, Cannot Say

Am I right in thinking that since flora is a type of flower, then the passage automatically refers to flora as well, making 'True' the correct answer?

The passage is about plants right? Flora is a plant is it not? So if we follow this assumption and our knowledge and from the reading I think we can assume that the the passage is true in regards to flora...

The answer's 'cannot say'; flora's a brand of butter, and the text doesn't mention anything about the reproduction of butter so we don't know.
