Feedback: a) No, this is a true statement. It's not the exception. RNA does have a sugar- phosphate backbone. Section 2.21 b) Right. This is the incorrect statement. RNA is not double-stranded. It's single- stranded. Section 2.21 c) No, this is a true statement. It's not an exception. RNA contains ribose sugar while DNA contains deoxyribose sugar. Section 2.21 d) No, this is a true statement. It's not an exception. RNA can direct protein production. Section 2.21 e) No, this is a true statement. It's not an exception. RNA contains the base known as uracil (U) where DNA uses the base called adenine (A). Section 2.21
