Really need help now please. :( A diploid cell has two pairs of homologous chromosomes. How many different combinations of chromosomes could there be in the gametes?

    but the chromosomes do not have to be identical e.g in men, there are two sex gametes, paired together X and Y gamete

    @DrAmaQueen Do you mean to say that human gametes have 23 chromosomes?

    or rather i would say that each chromosome in the pair is a gamete

    Body cells have 23 pairs of chromosomes. That's 46 in all.

    That's right, in humans. 44 autosomes, 2 sex chromosomes. And you know that human gametes have half that number? ~~~~~~~~ I read the question. It says....a diploid cell has two pairs of homologous chromosomes. 2 pairs of homologous chromosomes.... as in FOUR chromosomes in all?? Like a spider mite??

    If we assume A1 and A2 represent the homologous chromosomes.

    Two pairs of homologous chromosomes: Let's call them A1 A2 and B1 B2. A1 could pair with B1 or B2 in the gametes - this means there are two combinations. A2 could pair with B1 or B2. That's another two. Therefore, there are four overall combinations. I guess recombination could give rise to more differences.

    homologous means that the 2 chromosomes in a pair would have the same genetic material

    in a haploid cell, there are 22 homologous pairs, cause the last pair which is the sex chromosome pair is not homologous

    so in a diploid cell, i would assume there are 44 homologous pairs
