. During DNA replication Okazaki
Okazaki fragments are used to elongate.
A: The lagging strand away from the replication fork
B: The leading strand towards replication fork
C: The lagging strand towards replication fork
D: The leading strand away from replication fork
Okazaki fragments are short nucleotide sequences which are formed during DNA replication on 3'-5' strands.
The direction of okazaki fragments are 5'-3'.
It is later joined by DNA ligase enzymes and is called lagging strand. It is formed away from the replication fork.
Hence the correct answer is A i.e. the lagging strand away from the replication fork.
