    As you know, we have all learnt about the life cycles of plants such as mosses, ferns, pines, and flowering plants. [Talking about the terms such as gametophites and sporophites and ...].
    Are we gonna be tested on DAT? or did you see any questions about these subjects on your official DAT?
    THank you for responses.

    I would understand the general cycle of it... That being that the:

    Sporophyte (2N) -- Asexual/Meiosis --> spore (1N) -- Mitosis --> Gametophyte (1N) -- Sexual --> Gametes 2x(1N) -- Fertilization -- > Sporophyte

    I think that's right ... Know that the Gametophyte is Dominant in Mosses. and that the Sporophyte is Dominant in Ferns and Angiosperms.
