Identify three possible components of a DNA nucleotide.

  • cytosine, phosphate group, ribose
  • 2-deoxyribose, phosphate group, uracil
  • 2-deoxyribose, phosphate group, thymine
  • guanine, phosphate group, ribose
  • cytidine, phosphate group, ribose
  • adenine, phosphate group, ribose

Solutions

Expert Solution

Generally, DNA has three chemical components

1. Phosphate ring

2. a carbon-based sugar molecule (Deoxyribose)

3. a Nitrogenous base which is of four types {Adenine(A) Thymine (T) Guanadine (G) Cytosine (C)}.

So please check the options for phosphate ring, sugar, and any of the four bases.

You will find the third option from the top as the correct answer.
