the article said:Anther and stigma The two sexual parts of the tulip. The anthers are male reproductive organs and the stigma is the female part.


Yes, the anther is the male reproductive organ that produces the pollen. But #5 is not the anther. #5 is specifically the filament, or collectively the stamen(filament and anther together). The anther is at the very top of the stamen, at the end of the filament.

No, the stigma is not the female reproductive organ. That would be the ovary. The ovary is at the base of the pistil. The stigma serves only as a receptacle area for the pollen, and is at the top of pistil.
