Hi James,

‘Ploidy’ is the number of copies of chromosomes there are in a cell. Most cells in the human body are diploid meaning there are 2 copies of each chromosome. A haploid cell is one where there is just one copy of each cell so in this case the haploid number will be 6.

I hope that makes sense, feel free to comment with any questions if you need further clarification.
