    No, this *is* the test for your on-line high school. That is, you’re attempting to cheat on the test.

    Let’s see if I can guess which one!

    Your teacher or book seems to have problems with biology.

    1. A reading frame mutation??? He, she, or it appears to mean a frameshift mutation.

    2.Viral DNA incorporated into host cell DNA is known as a(n)
    e. None of the above.

    “prophage” is not correct. If viral DNA is incorporated into a human cell’s DNA, or into a plant cell’s DNA, or into a dog cell’s DNA, or so on, then it is not called a prophage.
