  2. The difference can be explained because everyone comes from a different family, but the difference among the family members must have another whole different theory altogether. There are 46 individual chromosomes in the human body, which make 23 pairs of chromosomes. These matching pairs of chromosomes are known as homologous pairs. You receive one from your mother and one from your father. Since there are 46 chromosomes, the human body cells are referred to as diploid. Human gametes have 23 chromosomes and they are called haploid.

    What’s the difference if you reproduce asexually or sexually? Since asexual reproduction only requires one parent, the offspring are identical to each parent. For example, if the parent can’t withstand certain diseases then chances are that the offspring won’t be able to combat those types of things either. Reproducing asexually can produce many offspring, but they will not survive as long. Sexual reproduction requires two parents. You get one gamete from your mother and one from your father; the offspring that is produces are genetically different from their parents. They will have a better chance at survival because of the combined genes. This varies among everyone.
