How many sets of chromosomes are in a human gamete?

Answers (3)

Humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes, for a total of 46 chromosomes.

In fact, each species of plants and animals has a set number of chromosomes. A fruit fly, for example, has four pairs of chromosomes, while a rice plant has 12 and a dog, 39

Human somatic cells have 46 chromosomes(23 pair) but a gamete(germ cell) gets half the amount, i.e. 23 chromosomes, (one from each pair)

Two sets of chromosomes present in human beings 2n=46.
During formation of gametes, meiosis takes place in which chromosome number is reduced into half. hence only one set of chromosomes are present in human gamet.
