Which of the following options would result from the actions of DNA polymerase during DNA replication?

0 votes
    Two DNA polymerase molecules act to synthesize a long continuous daughter DNA strand from each parental strand; ligase is not needed.
    Two DNA polymerase molecules act to synthesize a short segment of daughter DNA strand from each parental strand; ligase is used to connect these short segments of both daughter strands.
    Two DNA polymerase molecules act to synthesize daughter DNA strands: one via a long continuous strand that moves in the same direction as the helicase, and a second polymerase synthesizes short segments of DNA that must be joined by ligase.
    none of the above
