B: The leading strand towards replication fork

C: The lagging strand towards replication fork

D: The leading strand away from replication fork

 

 

Best Answer

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.
