16. You get another identical rectangle with redial fill. Please try to observe the nature of the radial fill in those two rectangles. They have two centers.This means both the rectangles have their own identical separate radial fills. Keep them side by side, on the same level with a very less space in between. Select both of them.

19. Go to Arrange > Ungroup

20. Now the rectangles are ungrouped. Select both of them.

21. Go to Arrange > Combine

22. Both the rectangles are combined. Now please carefully observe the fountain fill. When grouped, the fill are separate with two centers in each rectangle. After combine command is applied, both the rectangles are treated as one single object and hence the two fills are turned into one single fountain fill. This fill has one center and both the rectangles are treated as big one single rectangle.
