Expert Answer

Step 1

Any alteration in the genome’s nucleotide sequence is called a mutation. Any agent that results in a mutation is termed as a mutagen.

Step 2

Question number – 28

Correct answer: A) Non-sense mutation.

Reason for correct answer:

The nonsense mutation is a type of mutation in which an amino acid is altered to form a stop codon. This may result in premature termination of translation. In the given sequence, the amino acid glutamine (GAA) is altered to form a stop codon (TAA). Hence option A) is correct.

Reason for incorrect answers:

  • The silent mutation alters the nucleotide sequence of the genome, but it does not alter the amino acid or the overall protein’s function. ...
