    Answer

    There are two different types of nucleic acid polymerases.

    (1) DNA-dependent DNA polymerases

    (2) DNA-dependent RNA polymerases

    The DNA-dependent DNA polymerases use a DNA template for synthesizing a new strand of DNA, whereas DNA-dependent RNA polymerases use a DNA template strand for synthesizing RNA.
