I’m I right by saying in a cell you will find one set of chromosomes and no identical copies can be found in 1 cell for instance in humans there are 23 and there is no identical copy of chromosome say 14 in one cell

Well let's see if I can put this correctly. I just had a test on it. Cells in humans--excluding blood cells--have 2 sets of chromosomes. This is diploid cells, that is 23 chromes from mom 23 from dad for a total of 46 somes. Not all animals have the same chromosome count for example, dogs have 78 chromosomes arranged in 38 pairs. So all the cells are like this, you would not find one with 14 as this cell would be a mutated cell and phagotized.

I think that right, but I am sure someone will correct me if I am wrong. Also check out the tutorials on this web site, there are some pretty good ones on this subject.
