Dear Ayushi,
Apomixis: It means the result of a plant gaining the ability to bypass the most fundamental aspects of sexual reproduction:meiosis and fertilization. With out the need for male fertilization there is no Apomixis.
Apospory: It means production of gametophytes directly from diploid cells of the sporophytes with out spore formation.
