Antibiotic resistance

There are four categories of antibiotic resistance (modify the target, destroy the antibiotic, add modifying groups to the antibiotic and pump the antibiotic out of the cell), choose one category and use it as an example to explain the process of evolution of antibiotic resistance. (note: this does not need to be a real case of antibiotic resistance – the goal is to explain the concepts in your own words) Your answer must include:
a. (2) A clear description of the category of resistance you are going to discuss (how does it result in resistance).
b. (3) An explanation of how mutations can create that type of resistance gene.
c. (5) An explanation the selection, fitness and evolution that occur following treatment with the antibiotic in question.
