The answer is d. GCU UGU Transcription is a process of copying DNA into mRNA. DNA contains two complementary strands. Complementarity is achieved through interactions between nucleobases. In the DNA, base complements are adenine - thymine and guanine - cytosine. In the RNA, base complements are adenine - uracil and guanine -cytosine. During the transcription, bases complementary to a template DNA strand pairs to form mRNA. In this case, if DNA strand is CGA TCT, mRNA strand will be GCU UGU: DNA: CGA TCT RNA: GCU UGU
