Q. What are imago and nymph?

Nymphs are larvae of hemimetabolic insects (like grasshoppers). They are very similar to the adult insect although smaller, In holometabolic insects (like butterflies) the larva makes a cocoon (pupa, chrysalis) where it lives until emerging into the adult form, Imago is the name given to the adult form of insects with indirect development.
