Hi Satwik,

Thank you for asking

Bees have a different number of chromosomes. Females, workers and queens have32,16are contributed by the queen's eggs and16come from the drones sperm. Since drones hatch from unfertilized eggs, they only have the16 chromosomesthat were in the egg. Drones are haploid because they only have one set of chromosomes.
