what is triple fusion? why it is named so?

Expert Answer:

Out of the two male gametes released by the pollen grain, one gamete fuses with two polar nuclei forming a triploid endosperm. Since three nuclei are involved in the fusion i.e. one from the sperm cell and two polar nuclei from embryo sac it is named as triple fusion.
