Biology question?

Put the following steps in order from the beginning of the DNA replication process to the end.

1. RNA primase marks locations on the DNA strand with short RNA segments

2. the two strands of DNA are unzipped by DNA helicase starting at the point of origin

3. DNA polymerase begins adding bases to the exposed bases on the DNA strand that has been unzipped

4. single stranded binding proteins fill in gaps to keep the two DNA strands from reattaching

5. DNA ligase fills in gaps in Okazaki fragments to complete the lagging strand

6. hydrogen bonds form between the bases and form two new DNA double helices
