can we call nitrogenous base as basic units of genetic material why or why not ????

Dear student

Please refer the solution below for the said query

No, we cannot call nitrogen base as basic unit of genetic material (DNA or RNA). The basic unit is any fundamental smallest part which joins to form complex whole molecule. The genetic material cannot be constituted by combining nitrogen bases but by joining nucleotides. Hence, basic unit of genetic material is nucleotides.

Hope this information clears your doubt about the topic.
