    Phosphodiester bonds:"It is a co-v-a-l-e-n-t bond in which a phosphate group joins adjacent carbons through ester linkages."

    The 3'-end has a free hydroxyl group at the 3'-carbon of a sugar, and the 5'end has a free hydroxyl group or phosphate group at the 5'-carbon of a sugar.

    Explanation:

    Option - E: Is The best option to Choose from.

    The phosphodiester bond links a 3' carbon to a 5' carbon in DNA and RNA.

    The answer is E

    Explanation:

    join the 3' hydroxyl of one nucleotide to the 5' hydroxyl of the next. This is because in hybridization, 3' hydroxyl strand also bind to the 5' hydroxyl strand in a phosphodiester linkage.
