sir in a Collins text book its written that Ginger is a modified rhizome but Meritnation is telling that it's a bulb

Dear Student,

A Rhizome is irregular in shape and grows horizontally below the soil. It has scaly leaves, buds, nodes and internodes. While a bulb is a condensed disc shaped stem and a terminal bud overlapped by numerous scaly leaves which are protective in nature.

So from the above definitions, we can conclude that Ginger is a Rhizome and not a Bulb.

Hope this information clears your doubts about the topic.

Keep asking!!
