Best answer
The main difference between sperms and eggs of humans is that half of the sperms of a male ( father ) will have X chromosomes and the other half will have Y chromosomes. All the eggs of females ( mother) will have only X chromosomes.
Importance. If the father contributes X sex chromosome, at fertilisation through his sperm, the baby born will be a girl. On the other hand, if the father contributes a Y sex chromosome at fertilisation through his sperm, then the baby born will be a boy. Therefore the sperm determines the sex of the child.
