7. The Nucleotides in a DNA consist of:

1. A simple sugar; a phosphate group; an organic base

2. A simple sugar and a phosphate group

3. A phosphate group and an organic base

4. A phosphate group, a protein, and a simple sugar.

8. The organic bases in nucleic acids:

1. Are the same for RNA and DNA.

2. Occurs in random amounts in RNA and DNA

3. Are joined by hydrogen bonds on the interior of the double helix.

4. Carry the genetic code.

5. c and d are correct.

9. Which of the following mRNA codons would cause synthesis of a protein to terminate?

1. G-G-G

2. U-A-C

3. U-A-G
