3. Describe the three parts of a nucleotide and how they are attached to one another.
Answer: A sugar is in the shape of a pentagon, a phosphate group is in the shape of a circle with the letter "p" in the middle, and in the base it's shape is a pentagon on the left side, and a hexagon is connected with the pentagon. Also, the sugar, and phosphate group are the color blue, and base is in the color green. To attach each other sugar attaches to base (the pentagon), and sugar attaches through the phospate group.

4. (I don't understand need assistance)
