### How many chromosomes are there in a goat's diploid cell?

will assume that you mean human cells. Somatic cells are diploid (2n), containing two sets of chromosomes, one of paternal, one of maternal origin. Gametes, on the other hand, are haploid (n), with a single set of chromosomes, ie. half as many as the somatic cell. Now, the haploid chromosome number (n) is characteristic of the species, and in humans this number happens to be 23. Therefore a human gamete has 23 chromosomes, and a human somatic cell 23 pairs, or 46 chromosomes.
