This answer is incorrect. The answer should be D, UGGCAAUGG since guanine transcribes to cytosine, thymine to adenine, cytosine to guanine, and adenine to uracil. So, in the original DNA sequence; A-U, C-G, C-G, G-C, T-A, T-A, A-U, C-G, C-G, making the answer D, not B.

The correct answer to this question is B, UGGCAAUCC. This type of question would be found on a science test related to genetics. DNA sequences are used to determine the sequence of a DNA nucleic acid. This sequence is the order of DNAs nucleotides. Any technology or method used to determine the four bases order would use this process.

Those four bases are guanine, thymine, adenine, and cytosine. There are many types of DNA sequences. One is a protein-coding gene. This sequence involves cells using it for the synthesization of proteins. Other examples include regulatory DNA sequences and genes for non-coding RNA.
