For this you need to know how many nucleotides code for one amino acid. Do you?

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

Look up these terms in your textbook's glossary & index: codon, frameshift. If that doesn't explain it clearly enough to make sense, try searching the terms in wikipedia. Then go back to the question again.

I didn't ask whether the question provides that information. I wouldn't even expect it. If you received such question, you should already know how many nucleotides code for an amino acid! :twisted:
