You are given a sample of an unknown virus and are asked to conduct a genetic analysis. You find that the nucleotide content is 15% C, 15% G, 35% A and 35% T.

On the basis of this analysis and from what you know about virus genomes, this virus is most likely a

A

single-stranded RNA virus.

B

single-stranded DNA virus.

C

double-stranded RNA virus.

D

double-stranded DNA virus.
