Here is a tip:

The length of the pre-RNA transcript would be the same as the DNA template.

Explanation

As the mutation converts the start codon to stop codon, the translation process would be terminated, thereby influencing the length of the polypeptide. 

Verified Answer

The length of the RNA would not be changed as the mutation would not stop the transcription process.
