explain the process of megasporogenesis 

Dear Student.
Please find below the solution to the asked query.

Megasporogenesis
 
Megasporogenesis   is the process of formation of megaspores in the angiosperms.
The   megaspore mother cell   (MMC) gets converted into megaspores by the process of megasporogenesis.
 
The MMC is large and contains a dense cytoplasm and a prominent nucleus. It undergoes meiosis to produce four  megaspores.
 
In most flowering plants, only one megaspore is functional while the other three degenerate.
 
The single functional megaspore develops into the female gametophyte.
