E. All of the above

Deletions occur when all or part of a chromosome is deleted.

Duplications are when all or part of a chromosome is, well, duplicated.

Inversions are when the chromosome does a 180 and "flips" around.

Translocation are when all or parts of a chromosome move locations, sometimes even to other chromosomes.
