How many sex chromosomes does the normal human female inherit from her mother?
A human female normally inherits one sex chromosome, the X chromosome.
Humans have two sex chromosomes. Males Have one X and one Y chromosome, while females inherit two X chromosomes. Females inherit one X chromosome from the mother and X chromosome from the father. Males, however, receive only one X chromosome, from the mother. The Y chromosome is inherited from the father. The actual determine of sex is dependent upon the activation of the SRY gene, located on the Y chromosome. If the gene is inactive during embryonic development, then, the fetus will develop into a female even though the fetus possesses and X and a Y chromosome.
