which type of mutation will usually have the most detrimental effect on organismal function and why?

Answer to the question: Which type of mutation will usually have the most detrimental effect on organismal function and why?

The Correct Answer is:

A deletion, because there will be no protein produced for genes in the effected region.

The following answers are incorrect:

-A duplication, because there will be twice as much protein produced from genes in the effected region.
-An inversion, because genes will occur in the 3′ to 5′ direction instead of the 5′ to 3′ direction.
-A simple translocation, because genes occur on a different chromosome than they should.
-A reciprocal translocation, because genes occur on a different chromosome than they should.
