Based  on the nature of the embryo in the seed, angiosperms are divided into dicots and monocots.  
 
Dicotyledonae (Dicots) consists of plants having seeds with two cotyledons and the plants are called dicotyledonous plants.
Example: Mango, neem, sunflower.
 
Monocotyledonae (Monocots) consists of plants having seeds with one cotyledon and the plants are called monocotyledonous plants.
Example: Grasses, sugarcane, maize and wheat.

							As the name suggest mono-cotyledon means single cotyledon and dicotyledon means two cotyledon. And cotyledon is an embryonic leaf in seed-bearing plants.
