Name of the DNA strand which is copied to make mRNA?

This is typically called the template DNA, which is the anti-sense strand of DNA. The strand that is not transcribed is called the sense strand.

What strand of DNA is used to make a complementary copy or to make a complementary mRNA molecule-?

The strand is called the parental strand. the gene being copied would depend on which protein is needed.

What is the strand?

The template strand, if reffering to DNA, is the strand of the DNA that is copied to make more DNA.

Process of synthesizing an RNA strand from a DNA template strand?

The synthesis of mRNA from DNA is called transcription.

What is the non template strand?

The difference between the coding strand and the template strand is the coding strand is the strand which contains the coding genes, i.e. the one in which the RNA polymerase reads and transcribes into mRNA. It must have the promoter sequence in the correct orientation for transcription, as follows:5`-TATAATGCGCGCGCGCGCGCGCGC-3`3`-ATATTACGCGCGCGCGCGCGCGCG-5`In this sequence, the top strand is the coding strand, because it contains the promoter (TATAAT) in the correct orientation.However, when transcribed, the mRNA will be as follows:5`-GCGCGCGCGCGCGCGCGCGC-3`This is because the polymerase transcribes from the template strand, on the opposide side to the coding strand, to make it in the same orientation as the coding strand.I hope I have explained it enough for people to understand, however if I haven't please read this article I found which explains it thoroughly:

Which strand of DNA transcribes into mRNA?

The strand running in the 3'-5' end will be the one that RNA copies, as this is the direction of transcription

What strand of DNA is use to make a complementary copy or to make a complementary mRNA molecule?

The template strand is used to make a complementary copy. This is a type of DNA strand.
