CELLS-57JRPE

According to Chargaff's rules about the amounts of different nucleotides in double-stranded DNA, which of the following equations is FALSE?

Assume that the amounts of each nucleotide are expressed as proportions, such as C = 0.18.

A

$\cfrac{A}{ T} = \cfrac{C }{ G}$

B

$(A + G) = (C + T)$

C

$\cfrac{(A + G) }{ (C + T) } = 1$

D

$(A + T) = (C + G)$

E

$A + C + G + T = 1$
