    I think it was pretty good!
    I wrote that the process that wouldn't occur will be the cortical reaction, because by the fertilisation technique they mentioned (i think it was something like ICSI) only one sperm is introduced, therefore it will not be necessary for the cortical granules to release enzymes towards the zone pellucida to change its "shape" in order to prevent polyspermy, because there is no risk of polyspermy.

    Yep same answer they did however ask you to describe the process so the corticle reaction process was required i think.
