Expert Answer:

Diploid is a cell or organism that has paired or two sets of chromosomes, one from each parent. In humans, cells other than human sex cells, are diploid and have 23 pairs of chromosomes. 
Haploid or monoploid is a cell or organism that has just a single copy of each chromosome. Human sex cells (egg and sperm cells) contain a single set of chromosomes and are known as haploid.
