The rate of nucleotide incorporation by DNA polymerase is approximately 1000 per second in E. coli, and ~2000-4000 per minute in eukaryotes. What does this suggest about the differences in replication between eukaryotes and prokaryotes?

DNA replication in prokaryotes is unidirectional from one origin of replication on one chromosome, whereas eukaryotic replication is bidirectional from one origin of replication per chromosome.

DNA replication in prokaryotes is bidirectional from one origin of replication, whereas eukaryotic replication is unidirectional from multiple origins of replication on each chromosome.

DNA replication in prokaryotes is bidirectional from one origin of replication, whereas eukaryotic replication is bidirectional from multiple origins of replication on each chromosome.
