sperm and eggs

Actually the opposite. Somatic cells are diploid. Sperm and eggs are haploid.

Diploid cells have two complete sets of chromosomes. The body cells of animals are all diploid. Human diploid cells contain 46 chromosomes.

diploid cells i think i might be wrong Somatic cells are diploid.

Diploid cells have two sets of chromosomes, and are body (somatic) cells.

For example, a human somatic cell is diploid.

Type your answer here... as far as i know all kind of cells except Gamete has diploid number of chromosomes.

Somatic, or body, cells are all 2n or sometimes we say they are diploid.

When mitosis occurs, diploid cells are made (daughter cells). Diploid cells contain 46 chromosomes.

Depending on type of cell division the cells are either haploid or diploid at the end of division. During mitosis a dividing diploid cell results into diploid daughter cells and during meiosis a diploid cell results into haploid daughter cells.

Almost every cell in the body id diploid, the only cells that are haploid are the germ cells, ie sperm and ovum.

Mitotic Cell Division occurs in both haploid and diploid cells

Mitosis produces diploid cells with 46 chromosomes.

Mitosis produces two diploid somatic cells.

Mitosis starts with a diploid parent cell and ends with two diploid daughter cells. Meiosis starts with a diploid parent cell and ends with haploid daugther cells. The number of cells produced depends on the type of gamete being generated.

The diploid human cells have 46 chromosomes in each cell. Out of these 46, twenty two pairs (44 in total) are autosomes and one pair (two chromosomes) are sex chromosomes. In female both sex chromosomes are identical and called xx type, whereas in male one sex chromosome is very small in comparison to the other, being termed as y. Thus male human being has xy type of sex chromosomes. Thus on the basis of sex chromosomes one can determine each human body cell from male or female individual.

Haploid cells contain half the number of chromosomes as regular cells do. For example, a normal, or diploid, human cell contains 46 chromosomes, but a haploid cell will only contain 23. Most of the cells in your body are diploid cells, and only sex cells, egg or sperm, are haploid. The reason they are haploid is because when they join together to make an embryo, their DNA combines.

All most every cell.Only reproductive cells are haploid. There may be few exceptions.

The only option in that list that can be diploid is the somatic cell.

A cell with duplicate chromosomes are called diploid cells. Cells with one are called haploid cells.

A diploid cell is transformed into four haploid cells during meiosis

In meiosis diploid cells divide to produce four daughter cells each of which is haploid. It is the type of cell division required to produce gametes.

The type of cell division that produces four haploid daughter cells as opposed to two diploid daughter cells is meiosis.

During the type of cell division known as meiosis, the diploid cell undergoes two divisions to produce four haploid daughter cells that are genetically different.

The liver cells and muscle cells have more mitochondria when compared to other cells in the body.

The process of meiosis always begins with diploid cells. The chromosomes in the cells divide, so the result is four haploid cells.
