    Well, in simplest terms, each cell has 2 copies of each chromosome. Sexually reproducing organisms have 2 copies because one comes from the male and one comes from the female. That's what I remember, but it's been a while.

    Good day:

    If you are referring to human beings (I've only had human biology; I'm now taking A&P 1 which just deals with humans), somatic cells would have 23 homologous pairs of chromosomes for a total of 46. 23 chromosomes from the mother, 23 chromosomes from the father.

    I recommend digging into the following:

    * Mitosis vs. Meiosis.
    * Somatic vs. Gamete
    * Diploid vs. Haploid

    Thank you.
