Human Genome : Transcribe this DNA

In DNA and RNA, there are different combinations of nucleotides that form pairs. It works this way:

DNA: Adenine (A) pairs up with Thymine (T)

RNA: Adenine (A) pairs up with Uracil (U)

DNA and RNA: Cytosine (C) pairs up with Guanine (G).

Can you use this information to transcribe the sequence below? The two lines represent a sequence of DNA and a corresponding sequence of RNA. Drag and drop the letter from the bottom of the box to the RNA sequence, and then check your answers. If you submit an incorrect answer, try again. We will show you the correct answer after three tries.
