Item(s) that are typically described as "diploid"
a. bacterial plasmids carrying resistance genes
c.thermophilic Archaea, living in a hot spring
d.cells in the stalk of a typical mushroom
e.plant and animal zygotes
f.female gametophytes, in most land plants
a. bacterial plasmids carrying resistance genes -
becuase the number may occurs in large number.
b.moss sporophytes - Diploid.
c.thermophilic Archaea, living in a hot spring - Haploid
Archeaea are haploid because they have only one set of chrmosomes.
d.cells in the stalk of a typical mushroom - Diploid'
As the meiosis occurs in the mushroom cap or mushroom umberealla, the stalk is purely diploid.
e.plant and animal zygotes - Diploid
As the zygotes are the resuls of fusion of haploid gametes, it is diploid.
f.female gametophytes, in most land plants - Haploid
As the female and male gametyophytes are result of meiosis, those are haploid.
g.fern leaves - Diploid
As the fern plant is diploid, the leaves, roots somatic body part are in diploid.
h.pollen - Haploid
As the pollen is result of meiosis, it is haploid.
