Assertion: An organism with lethal mutation may not even develop beyond the zygote stage.
Reason: All types of gene mutations are lethal.
If both assertion and reason are true and reason is the correct explanation of assertion
If both assertion and reason are true but reason is not the correct explanation of assertion
If assertion is true but reason is false
If both assertion and reason are false.
Which one of the following pairs is correctly matched with regard to the codon and the amino acid coded by it
UUA - valine
AUG - cysteine
AAA - lysine
CCC - alanine
Assertion : Replication and transcription occur in the nucleus but translation occurs in the cytoplasm.
Reason : mRNA is transferred from the nucleus into the cytoplasm where ribosomes and amino acids are available for protein synthesis.
