78


39


23


46

Detailed explanation1: After meiosis II, when each parent cell gets divided into two gametes each gamete cell contains 23 chromosomes. In this phase, each gamete remains haploid in nature. At the end of meiosis II, each cell will have the half number of the actual chromosome i.e. 23 chromosomes.
Detailed explanation2: At the conclusion of meiosis, there are four haploid daughter cells that go on to develop into either sperm or egg cells.
Detailed explanation3: During meiosis II, each cell containing 46 chromatids yields two cells, each with 23 chromosomes. Originally, there were two cells that underwent meiosis II; therefore, the result of meiosis II is four cells, each with 23 chromosomes.
Detailed explanation4: So, if there are a total of 78 chromosomes then half of its number (half of 78) is 39 chromosomes are present in the female gamete or egg cell. So, the egg cell will have 39 numbers of chromosomes. Therefore, the answer is 39 chromosomes would be present in its egg cell.
