This question already has an answer here:
I am confused... People usually say that "DNA" is made of two strands deoxyribonucleic acid bound together. Nonetheless, the acronym "DNA" means "deoxyribonucleic acid".
So by logic, a molecule of "DNA" should be only made of one strand of deoxyribonucleic acid, and not two! Right?
This is really confusing...
