What are hadrons made up of?

are any hadron which is made of three quarks (qqq). Because they are made of two up quarks and one down quark (uud), protons are baryons. So are neutrons (udd). One example of a meson is a pion ( +), which is made of an up quark and a down anitiquark.

Accordingly, what is a quark made out of?

A quark is a tiny particle which makes up protons and neutrons. After the invention of the particle accelerator, it was discovered that electrons are fundamental particles, but neutrons and protons are not. Neutrons and protons are made up of quarks, which are held together by Gluons.
