Expert Answer:

Chromatids: A chromatid is one copy of a newly copied chromosome which is still joined to the original chromosome by a single centromere.

Sister chromatids: Sister chromatids are two identical copies of the same chromosome formed by DNA replication. They are attached to each other by the centromere. During cell division, they are separated from each other, and each daughter cell receives one copy of the chromosome.
