B is false. Insertions and deletions cause frameshifts. We can cross that out.
ok sounds good
A is false. A point mutation only affects a few genetic sequences whereas a chromosomal mutation can affect a wide range of genes. So we can also cross that out.

D is not a good answer. All types of mutation have about the same probability of being passed on through heredity.
C is the best answer. Chromosomal mutations can alter the number of chromosomes a disorder known as aneuploidy.
ok, thank you so much(:
To be specific, B can be false. It just depends on how many insertions or deletions occur.
