a. In a testis at puberty, spermatogonia produce sperms by the process of spermatogenesis.
b. The spermatogonia multiply by mitotic division and increase in numbers.
c. Each spermatogonium is diploid and contains 46 chromosomes.

e. A primary spermatocyte completes the first meiotic division (reduction division) leading to formation of two equal haploid cells called secondary spermatocytes having only 23 chromosomes each.
