23.

A gamete contains exactly half the genetic material (and chromosomes) of a normal cell. Humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes in their genome in normal cells. A gamete has 23 (not paired) chromosomes.

The number of chromasones differ for the larger groupings of living things, however in the higher life forms (those that have gametes) the number of chromosomes will always be half of the diploid form.

In humans it is usually 26 (13 pairs)

There are half as many chromosomes in gametes as in somatic or body cells. Since humans have 46 chromosomes in their body cells, male gametes have half as many, or 23 chromosomes. (Assuming you're asking about male humans)

A gamete only has half of the total genes a normal cell has. Since the total number of normal cells have are 46, there are 23 chromosomes in a gamete. That is the case because for example, for reproduction, the sperm goes into the egg, completing the number of chromosomes. This allows variation in genes for the offspring.

Gametes are haploid cells which means they have half the number of chromosomes which is 22 chromosomes.

How do multiple alleles and genes working together on a single cell trait give us variety?

When the process meiosis creates new gametes (sex cells), each gamete has haploid, or n chromosones (half the number of other cells), which means that each gamete has 23 chromosones. Chromosones come in pairs, and when meiosis occurs it randomly picks one chromosone from each pair, which is what causes variation. We inherit 23 chromosones from each parent as well, so that adds to the variation even more. Chromosones and alleles are both found in the same place. Hope that was what you were looking for.

How many sets of chromosomes are found in an organism gametes?

In organisms where meiosis occurs to create gametes, sex cells are made to have half as many chromosomes as regular body cells have. For example, a human man's sex cell or gamete would have 23 chromosomes and the non-sex cells in his body (the ones that aren't produced in his testes) would contain 46 chromosomes. This is for the purpose of creating progeny that have an increased variety of genetic information. This is possible because the male gamete combines with the female gamete to create a whole new organism with a new combination of genetic information that has the correct number of chromosomes.
