How do pyrimidines differs from purines?

Purines and pyrimidines are the building blocks of nucleic acids.  The difference between purines and pyrimidines is in the number of  carbon-rings present. Pyrimidines cont
Name the purines and pyrimidines?

Name the purines and pyrimidines?

Purines- Adenine (A), and Guanine (G) Pyrimidines- Cytosine (C), Thymine (T), and Uracil (U)
Why must a purine pair with a pyrimidine?

Why must a purine pair with a pyrimidine?

Purine must pair with pyrimidine due to their sizes. One has a  large double ring and the other one a small single ring. This makes  pairing easy for them.
