DNA is one type of nucleic acid, nucleic acid is made up of nucleotides not from the amino acids. amino acids joint by peptide bond and prepare protein. so my answer is B) that means DNA is not related to amino acid.

if you replace the dash with the words "is a type of" answers a, c, and d are correct. Sugars are a type of carbohydrate, enzymes are a type of protein, and RNA is a type of nucleic acid. Answer B is correct because DNA is not a type of amino acid, dna is a blueprint for transcription into ran which will translate to the correct sequence of amino acids to build protein.
