    Solution:

    In DNA, adenine pairs with thymine and guanine pairs with cytosine. Therefore, amount of adenine is equal to the amount of thymine and amount of guanine is equal to the amount of cytosine. 
    Thymine = Adenine = 23%
    Guanine + Cytosine = 100 – (2x 23%) = 54%
    Guanine = Cytosine = 54% / 2 = 27%
