What change in the nature of the genetic code could be possible if, instead of two sets of base pairs (A-T, G-C), there were three sets of base pairs?

The codons could be one base long.

  

The extra base pair would make it possible to have codons two bases in length rather than three.

  

The codons would still have to be three bases long.

  

This change could not have any effect on the nature of the genetic code.
