why is the number of sperms produced always more than the number of eggs produced?

Expert Answer:

Because not all the sperm gets to the egg(s). To ensure each egg will be ferrtilized there needs to be more sperm then egg(s). And sperms are motile and they have to compete with one another for their existence. In the end only one sperm fuses with the ova .
