Expert Answer:

Gametes, produced by meiosis in the reproductive organs are haploid, i.e. they have only one set of chromosomes which are half of the normal diplod cells.  When the sperm and ovum fuse during fertilization, the resulting zygote will be diploid due to fusing of the chromosomes of sperm and ovum. Thus the chromosome number is re-established in the offspring.
