DNA replication is semi-conservative in that

Answer:

a)

DNA replication can only follow the replication fork on the leading strand.

c)

The base sequence of a DNA a molecule is conserved, with very high fidelity, in DNA replication.

d)

The two strands of the original helix are not conserved, but the base sequence in the DNA is preserved.
