The correct answer is option B – AUUCGUAAGGCUC The corresponding sequence to the DNA sequence (TAAGCATTCCGAG) mentioned above as a result of transcription is AUUCGUAAGGCUC. This question is testing your knowledge of base pairing specifically in transcription. Transcription is the process whereby the DNA sequence of a gene is copied to produce mRNA which is needed for protein synthesis.

DNA sequence uses complementary base paring of guanine (G) and cytosine (C), thymine (T) and adenosine (A) while on the mRNA produced you have nucleotides such as adenine, uracil, cytosine and guanine. Thymine is replaced by Uracil. Since DNA sequence is complementary to mRNA produced. A on the DNA on the DNA sequence will be matched by U on mRNA and G on DNA sequence is matched by C on MRNA.
