    The unwinding occurs at the replication fork, produced by DNA helicase which is powered by ATP hydrolysis. It is said to be complementary because of the base pairs.

    a pyrimidine C & T always bonds chemically with a specific purine G or A. It's chemical H bonding so that the "rungs" of the DNA ladder are the same size - 3 "loops" long
