So, during which stage will a diploid (2n) cell contain twice the amount of DNA found in a gamete (n).

A diploid cell entering the cell cycle will only have twice the amount of DNA found in a gamete (2n) in G1 - before DNA is replicated.
After DNA replication has occurred (during S phase), the diploid cell becomes 4n - which is four times the amount of DNA found in a gamete (n).

Hope it makes sense?
