Answer:

A human cell have 46 total or 23 pairs of chromosomes.

Explanation:

During Interphase, the DNA is copied. Hence, there are 2 copies of one chromosome. This means that there are now 46 pairs of chromosome in the parent cell.

However, during cytokinesis, the cell divides itself into two, meaning that each daughter cell are left with 23 pairs of chromosomes or 46 chromosomes.
