comment One Gene and many proteins
This question cannot be answered in its current form. How many of the exons contain a valid START codon? How many exons are in UTRs? How many actually code for protein and don't contain in-frame STOP codons? Please edit and make it more specific.

revised During the process of correcting mutations via gene therapy, is the defective gene removed?
Fixed formatting. Please don't use code blocks for non-code. For one thing, it makes you have to scroll to read the whole line.

comment When is Water Produced During Photosynthesis?
@aandreev You can't think of this reaction as a math formula, the water on the right is actually produced by the reaction, it is not left over. While green plants use $H_{2}O$, some bacteria use $H_2S$ instead and they also produce water on the right. Also, this shows the net reaction which has many, many intermediate steps. The basic reaction is $CO_2+2H_2O \rightarrow (CH_{2}O)+O_2+H_2O$. However, to produce glucose ($C_6H_{12}O_6$), you need 12 water molecules and 6 of carbon dioxide. I love it when physicists try to do biology.

comment Organisms that contain rare chemical elements
In that case, please edit your question to reflect what you're currently asking. Most of the elements you mention will be present in, basically, most organisms. Which ones are you asking about? Oh, and this article suggests that tin is an essential nutrient in humans as well. Please edit and narrow the question down to something specific that we can answer.
