After fertilisation, the resulting cell which gives rise to a new individual is the (a) embryo (b) ovum (c) foetus (d) zygote


After fertilisation (i.e. combining of sperm with the egg), zygote is formed. It is the beginning of formation of a new individual. All the multicellular animals start their life from a single cell called zygote. A zygote is the first diploid cell that is formed by the fusion of male and female gametes resulting in the formation of an embryo



The zygote is unicellular.

The embryo is multicellular.

Medically, a zygote is termed as zygocyte.

The embryo is termed as a diploid eukaryote.

The mitosis of zygote results in the formation of an embryo.

An embryo is a stage following the zygote stage.

The process of formation of the zygote is known as fertilization.

The process of formation of the embryo is known as embryogenesis.
