There are 3.
A chiral carbon (chirality center) is a carbon which is attached to four different groups. In 1-chloro 2,5-dimethyl cyclohexane, the carbon attached to chlorine and the two carbons attached to the methyl groups are chirality centers. Other carbons have at least two similar groups (Hydrogens) attached to themselves . Thus they can not be chiral carbons.
