Default DNA replication



My 7th grader missed a question on a test: "During replication the following is copied______."

He chose chromosomes. The correct answer was DNA. Based on my limited, layman's knowledge it would seem that chromosomes, while not the best answer, is technically correct. Not a big deal...just curious as to what you think.

Thumbs up Re: DNA replication

wow!
quite an innovative answer I must say! It has thrown me into confusion as well!
But a chromosome is something more than DNA. It contains a lot many proteins and is a higher order structure of DNA. The DNA is copied in short stretches at a time (which is a replication event) that ultimately lead to complete copying of a Chromosome.
