    Assuming you were given the template strand of DNA, then the RNA that was transcribed from it is:

    5'-UCCGAUUCGGUA-5'

    However, if you were given the sense strand of DNA, then the corresponding RNA sequence is

    5'-UACCGAAUCGGA-3'

    ==

    You should answer as I have answered above, and then tell your teacher in the future to please specify whether the given strand is "sense" or "template."

    Base pairs are the same except Adenosine pairs with Uracil instead of Thymine in RNA. G still pairs with C and vice versa. So your stand would start, UCCGA etc.
