184 nucleotides are bonded in a linear array, forming a nucleic acid. How many molecules of water were formed as a result of this polymerization? (Points: 4)
a. 183
b. 185
c. 92
d. 368


Hint: Nucleotides are linked together by dehydration synthesis to form polynucleotides. This bond is a phosphodiester bond. So if each bond gives of a water molecule there would be one less water molecule than nucleotides.
