Should I study the life cycles of different plants for DAT? Is this on DAT?

    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.
