    Down Accepted answer

    First, we can see that W is a gene and not a chromosome. So A,B,C and D are out.

    X seems to be something that can cut the vector used, which in this case is a plasmid, in order to incorporate the sequence we want. Likewise, Z is something that we use to glue together the sequence with the plasmid. Therefore, X is a restriction enzyme and Z is a ligase. As mentioned, Y is a plasmid since it is circular and a vector is expected to be used during genetic engineering.

    The answer is E.
