[Answer] Recent studies have shown that xeroderma pigmentosum (an error in the nucleotide excision repair process) can result from mutations in one of seven genes. What can you infer from this finding?A) There are seven genes that produce the same protein.B) These seven genes are the most easily damaged by ultraviolet light.C) There are several proteins involved in the nucleotide excision repair process. D) These mutations have resulted from translocation of gene segments.

Answer: (C) There are several proteins involved in the nucleotide excision repair process.
