The vast and dominant woodlands in Europe, Asia, and North America, and mountains such as the Himalayas are primarily wooded with angiosperms, although some conifers are also present in these regions. Therefore, the correct answer is "angiosperms and some conifers".

Angiosperms and conifers are more widespread and dominant in the world compared to other gymnosperms. They are found in various habitats ranging from tropical rainforests to tundras and play a significant role in the world's ecosystems.

If gymnosperms including conifers are all together 900, while only conifers are 500 and angiosperms are 250, 000 in the world according to report, then, angiosperms and conifers are more in the world. So, the answer should be angiosperms and conifers.

Conifer belongs to the division "pinophyta", consists of 8 families, 68 genera, 550 living species. Their wood is called as 'SOFT WOOD". They are dominant in himalayas, southern Europe and some southern countries.

Conifers grow in a height of 3000 m-4000 m suitable for its growth as per the favorable climatic condition.

So these trees vastly grows on hilly region like Himalayas.
