Solution

The correct option is B 23
Human is the diploid microorganism so the have 46 chromosomes. But when it comes to germ cells the sperm or ovum consists of the haploid pair of chromosomes that means it contains 23 chromosomes. This is because when the fertilization takes place the offspring is diploid.
So the correct answer is '23' .
