Solution :-

When mutation occurs in single base pair of DNA it is termed as point mutation. e.g., Sickle cell anaemia - there is substitution of glutamic acid by valine in the sixth position of the beta globulin chain of haemoglobin leading to formation of sickle shape RBCs instead of biconcave RBCs
