The difference is one oxygen per nucleotide. They really associate through hydrogen bonds.

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

Too bad, there is nothing about DNA, but rather about proteins :-/ And there are mistakes.

Both are nucleic acids containing genetic information with different sugars deoxyribose and ribose sugars

RNA is more than 'genetic information'. tRNA, microRNA, ribosomes and so on have plethora of other functions. Only mRNA and genome of some viruses falls in 'genetic information' type.

RNA has a Uracil pyrimidine base in the place of thymine in DNA as well :)
