    my opinion is A II answer is out because meiosis doesn't produces gametophytes but they form spores. IV is wrong as meiosis also occurs in spore producing vascular plants which aren't seed plants. and also fertilization occurs in both seedless and seed plants. ex: in flowering plants double fertilization occur hence I'll go with I and III which is the answer A.

    Yes, the answer is A as the other two do not make sense.
