My books are not consistent with what i find online...Does DNA Polymerase "assemble" complementary nucleotides during DNA replication or does it reform the phosphodiester bonds between the "new" nucleotides. And with DNA Ligase my teacher told me it reforms Hydrogen bonds between DNA bases after replication but my book says it reforms phosphodiester bonds between nucleotides. I have no idea which one is right can someone please help me...Thankyou.

All 3 are involved in DNA Replication.
DNA Helicase causes the DNA to unwind, DNA Polymerase causes the nucleotides to attach and bonds to form and DNA Ligase zips it up!

Does RNA polymerase reform the phosphodiester bonds between the free RNA nucleotide when forming mRNA?

DNA ligase is not involved in DNA replication, I know it’s involved in formation of phosphodiester bonds to seal cut ends in the formation of a recombinant DNA
