it happens because of these reactions

Hg22+ + 2e- = Hg         (reduction of Hg)

2NO3- = 2NO3 + 2e-       (oxidation of NO3- )

 

Hg2+ + 2e- = Hg             (this is wrong)

just a comment that we wud be needing to know that the mercurous ion exists in dimeric form to solve the problem besides the fact that it has a +2 charge on it
