Q77. Which of the following statements is correct?

1. Adenine pairs with thymine through two H-bonds

Solution:
The bases in two strands are paired through hydrogen bond-forming base pairs (bp).
Adenine pairs with thymine by two hydrogen bonds and guanine pairs with cytosine with three hydrogen bonds. As a result, always a purine comes opposite to a pyrimidine.
