  • Q4
    What is the correlation between the structure of DNA and the function of proteins?
    The sequence of nucleotides in the DNA specifies the sequence of amino acids in proteins, which determines its shape and function
    The amount of DNA in a cell determines the function of proteins
    There is no correlation between the structure of DNA and the function of proteins
    The shape of the DNA helix determines the shape of the protein
