[Answer] What is a major difference between eukaryotic DNA replication and prokaryotic DNA replication?A) Prokaryotic replication does not require a primer.B) Prokaryotic chromosomes have a single origin of replication whereas eukaryotic chromosomes have multiple origins of replication.C) DNA replication in prokaryotic cells is conservative. DNA replication in eukaryotic cells is semiconservative.D) DNA polymerases of prokaryotes can add nucleotides to both 3′ and 5′ ends of DNA strands; those of eukaryotes function only in the 5′ → 3′ direction.

Answer: (B) Prokaryotic chromosomes have a single origin of replication whereas eukaryotic chromosomes have multiple origins of replication.
