What is the difference between diploid and haploid?

Ex: Human cells like skin, lung etc. are diploid that is they have two sets of chromosomes (23 from each parent) but Gemetic cells like egg and sperm are haploid. Haploid: Haploid are the cells which contain a single set of chromosomes in genome (chromosomes). Ex: Gemetic cells etc.

Regarding this, which is a gamete?

gamete. Female gametes are called ova or egg cells, and male gametes are called sperm. Gametes are haploid cells, and each cell carries only one copy of each chromosome. These reproductive cells are produced through a type of cell division called meiosis.

What is the male gamete?

They are also referred to as sex cells. Female gametes are called ova or egg cells, and male gametes are called sperm. Gametes are haploid cells, and each cell carries only one copy of each chromosome. These reproductive cells are produced through a type of cell division called meiosis.

Are humans diploid or haploid organisms?

Ploidy is the area of biology that refers to the number of chromosomes in a cell. Therefore, cells with two sets are diploid, and those with one set are haploid. In diploid organisms, such as humans, the haploid cells are used only for the sex cells for reproduction, while the rest of the cells are diploid.
