Autosomes are non-sex chromosomes. The sex chromosomes are X and Y (XX in females and XY in males). Humans have 46 chromosomes, two of which are sex chromosomes. The remaining 44 are all autosomes, so this would be your answer for a normal karyotype.
Side note: although there are 44 autosomes TOTAL, they can be divided into 22 homologous pairs of chromosomes, with one chromosome of each pair coming from each parent. So in reality, humans only have 22 "different" chromosomes (in addition to the sex chromosomes), but possess two "versions" of each, giving a total of 44 plus XX or XY.
Yes thank you but because the question is asking for total, it would be 44 right?
