i) The base sequence for its complementary strand is ‘ATCGTACTA’.
ii) These base pairs are held together by hydrogen bonds. Between A and T 2 hydrogen bonds are present and between G and C 3 hydrogen bonds are present.
iii) Base complementary Rules were proposed by Chargaff. It states that bond pairs are always formed between A (Adenine) , T (Thymine) and between C (Cytosine) , G (Guanine) i.e. a purine always pairs with a pyrimidine and vice versa.
