strands at each end of the bubble as the replication forks proceed outward.

^ Eventually, the forks of adjacent bubbles run into each other and the segments of DNA fuse,.

..producing two identical near DNA molecules.

Newly synthesized DNA

Conclusion: The products of eukaryotic DNA replication are two linear DNA molecules.
