An egg is observed to be fertilized by multiple sperm. Which of the following can be predicted about why this has occurred?
The acrosomal process of the sperm could not bind to the receptors present on the egg membrane.
The egg contained a diploid chromosome number.
There was an abundance of calcium ions released by the egg.
The egg cell was porous and this allowed the sperm to penetrate the cell at multiple locations.
The cortical reaction was somehow inhibited.
