The right option is; Initiation occurs before elongation.

Translation is the part of the process of gene expression in which the genetic code (information) that is present within a messenger RNA (mRNA) is changed into a series of amino acids that are held together by peptide bonds. Translation occurs in the cytoplasm, and it happens in three main steps which are; initiation (start), elongation (make longer), and termination (stop). The major important elements needed for translation are; ribosomes, tRNA, mRNA, and aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases.
