A 45 year old male presents to clinic complaining of a ringing in his ears. The patient's vitals are: BP 120/65, RR 16, 100% on room air, HR 78 bpm and he appears to be in no acute distress. Upon obtaining a history you learn that this patient also complains that at times the "room feels like it's spinning." You also notice throughout the interview that you have to speak loudly as the patient has difficulty hearing. The patient is then lost to follow up for his current condition.

Which of the following chromosomes is most likely mutated in association with this patient's condition?
