After DNA replication occurs, the two resulting molecules consist of one molecule of parent DNA and one molecule of newly synthesized DNA.

After DNA replication occurs, the two resulting molecules consist of one strand of parent DNA and one newly synthesized DNA.

After DNA replication occurs, the two resulting molecules consist of one strand of parent DNA and one newly synthesized RNA.

After DNA replication occurs, the two resulting molecules consist of one strand of parent RNA and one newly synthesized DNA.

Answer:

DNA replication is semi-conservative which means your first choice is correct. “After DNA replication occurs, the two resulting molecules consist of one molecule of parent DNA and one molecule of newly synthesized DNA.”
