The correct option is C Cistron
Cistron is the largest element in a gene which encodes a polypeptide during protein synthesis.
Recons are locations within a gene which participate in recombination.
Mutons are elements within a gene that can undergo a mutation and lead to the production of the mutant phenotype.
Operon is a unit made up of linked genes which are thought to regulate other genes responsible for protein synthesis.
