    23 and 46
    err
    considering all chromosomes are in PAIRS, how do you think you have 23 chromosomes?

    23 PAIRS, possibly.

    Yes. Do you expect a prize or something?

    However the original poster was referring to "NORMAL", i.e. non-gamete cells.

    I am sure anyone with half a brain would have noticed the poster had just mistyped missing off an "s". It's not as stupid a mistake as yours, really, is it?

    The original poster is the person who posted the original message on the thread, not some kind of wall decoration as you seem to believe..

    In saying that "normal" cells have 23 chromosomes.

    Why don't you tell me what a "normal" cell is then?

    I would take a "normal" cell (in humans) to be a somatic cell rather than a gamete cell, which are unusual with respect to their chromosome number.

    so can YOU explain why a normal cell have 23 chromosomes whereas every other cell in the body suppose to be 46? i could be suprised

    err
    I can't explain that, because they DON'T.
