      How many pollen grains enter the ovary during pollination. If only one pollen tube enters,one seed should be formed.But how is it possible to form large nuber of seeds in a single ovary?

      As I understand it, a single pollen grain can contain multiple gametes with which many eggs can be pollinated. Most ovaries have more than one egg, so with enough gametes, they can all be fertilized.
