In 1950, Erwin Chargaff observed that there are relationships between the relative amounts of the nucleotide bases adenine (A), thymine (T), cytosine (C), and guanine (G) in DNA. These relationships became known as Chargaff's rules.

Using Chargaff's rules, if we know that 36% of the bases in a double-stranded DNA molecule are C, which of the following is correct?

A

36% of the bases are A.

B

64% of the bases are G.

C

32% of the bases are T.

D

28% of the bases are A.

E

16% of the bases are G.

F

14 % of the bases are T.
