(a)

Double fertilisation is characteristic feature of angiosperms. It was discovered by SG Nawaschin in 1898. In double fertilisation, one male gamete fused with ovum to form diploid zygote and the second male gamete fused with diploid secondary nucleus to form the triploid primary endosperm nucleus, which develops into endosperm. The endosperm provides, nutrition to the developing embryo
