84. The CCG gene inhibits the unstable site on the Fragile X chromosome.  

False

CGG

True.

An expansion to >200 CGG/CCG repeats (hereafter called CGG) in the 5' region of the FMR1 gene causes fragile X syndrome

The question itself doesn't make much sense, but I guess it says that when you converse sideways, there are less non-verbal cues than when you converse face to face. I'd say this is true, because when you converse sideways you see less of the body of the other person.

84. The CCG gene inhibits the unstable site on the Fragile X chromosome.  

False

CGG

True.

An expansion to >200 CGG/CCG repeats (hereafter called CGG) in the 5' region of the FMR1 gene causes fragile X syndrome

I would still go for false (for exam purposes). If you read any of the textbooks, they'll only refer to CGG.

You're right: CCG is not a gene (neither is CGG). They're trinucleotides.
