Explanation:
An unfertilized ear of corn consists of female flowers arranged in pairs on a cob. In most varieties, only one flower of each pair develops and is able to reproduce. Each developing flower sends out a long, threadlike silk from its ovary, an egg-bearing structure at the base of the flower. At blossoming time, a mass of silks extends beyond the tip of the husks.
