    Replication in eukaryotes and prokaryotes

    In eukaryotes replication takes place in nucleus.

    There are multiple origins of replication.

    replication occurs at multiple points along the chromosome.

    In prokaryotes replication takes place in cytoplasm

    There is only one point of origin of replication

    Replication happens at just one point on the chromosome.

    Answer:

    Statement 2, 4 and 5 describe DNA replication in prokaryotes and statements 1, 3 and 6 describe in eukaryotic replication.

    Explanation:

    During DNA replication There is only one point of origin of replication and replication occurs in 2 opposing directions the same time on every chromosome and occurs in the cell cytoplasm in prokaryotes because the prokaryotic cell does not have a nucleus.  

    Hence, statement 2, 4, and 5 describe DNA replication in prokaryotes.

    Eukaryotes have multiple points of origin during DNA replication and use unidirectional replication that takes place in the nucleus of the cell. They have multiple origins of replication on every chromosome, initiate at different times.

    Hence, statements 1, 3, and 6 describe DNA replication in eukaryotes.
