DNA is different from RNA in lot of ways.
The DNA molecule is made out of many nucleotides. A nucleotide is made out of a sugar (a pentose that is ribose for RNA and dezoxyribose for DNA), a phosphoric radical and a nitrogenous base (adenine, guanine, cytosine and timine for DNA and adenine, guanine, uracile and timine for RNA). Another thing is that RNA is usually single stranded and DNA is usually made out of 2 complementary strands which confer stability to the molecule.
Don't stop just yet we've got the world looking in our window
