PCR amplification is actually making many, many copies, so the testing is easier.

It doesn't actually make the DNA physically larger - though the idea of a giant double-helix does make me giggle. =^.^=

In this case "amplify" means to copy repeatedly, not to make bigger... so your question makes no sense at all.

So I guess my answer is d.
