Diploid is a term that describes the presence of two complete sets of chromosomes in an organism's cells, with each parent contributing a chromosome to each pair. A diploid cell has two full collections of chromosomes. Most cells in human beings are diploid, comprising 23 chromosome pairs, so 46 chromosomes in total amount. One duplicate of each chromosome set came from the individual's mother and the other from the person's father. Since we have 2 copies of each chromosome, we also have 2 copies of every gene. Your common grocery store strawberry is octoploid, with eight total sets of 7 chromosomes each, or 56 chromosomes in overall, if you do the math.
