Hint: It is the flowers that make Brassicaceae one of our easier families to recognize. The flower of this family is radially symmetric. It has the characteristic features of having sepals and petals of 4 in number and 6 stamens in which 2 are short and 4 are long. The placentation of a single bilocular pistil is having parietal placentation.

Complete answer: Almost all of them are grasses, annuals in the tropics, and biennials in cooler areas. All parts produce a spicy, sulfur-rich juice. Root: The taproot, sometimes swollen from food storage, maybe conical (radish), spindle-shaped (English radish), or napiform (turnip).
Inflorescence: raceme, corymb, or corymb ramo.

Additional information:
Crucifers: position, vegetative and floral characters (with diagram)
Flower: Ebracteada, without bracteoles, pedicellate, bisexual, regular, complete, actinomorphic, hypogynous, cyclic. There are usually no bracts or bracts.
Calyx: Four out of two whorls, free, caducous, the lateral internal sepals are often bag-shaped or bag-shaped at the base, nested, inferior.
Corolla: Four petals, clawed and diagnosed as the arms of a cross (cruciform), nested or twisted, lower.
Androecium: Six free, tetradynamous stamens arranged in two whorls, the shortest stamens are two in number and in external position, while the four longest stamens arranged in pairs are in internal position; nectar glands in the form of green dots present at the base of the outer and inner pairs of stamens.
Parietal placement; short style; simple or bifid stigma.
Fruits: Capsular, siliqua, or silicula, sometimes a lomentum, united and tight between the seeds, for example. For example Raphanus.Seeds: fatty, exalbuminous, with a large embryo which completely fills the seed. The germination of the seed is epigeal.

So, the correct answer is ‘${ K }_{ 2+2 }{ C }_{ 4 }{ A }_{ 2+4 }{ G }_{ (2) }$’.

Note: This family contains a considerable diversity of cultivated food crops such as mustard, cress, kale, and cabbage (Brassica oleracea), broccoli, etc. - Many of these equivalent harvests are utilized to deliver oils and creature grain too. - There is additionally a wide scope of fancy plants in this family. - Arabidopsis thaliana is the model plant of decision for quite a bit of sub-atomic science and hereditary qualities.
