Q. 1

Why is RNA more r

Answer :

RNA is more reactive than DNA, following are the reasons:


- RNA is made up of ribose sugar, while DNA is made of deoxy ribose sugar. Due to present of -OH group in the robes sugar , RNA is more active.


- RNA is single stranded, hence its nitrogenous base is not away from water, and thus is reactive. While in case of DNA , it is noble stranded it has its nitrogenous base in the interior of the both the strands , thus keeping it away from water.
