Why is replication called semiconservative?

A

Replication is semiconservative because it entails the formation of a new, perfect DNA strand from the parent DNA strand and a newly synthesized strand. The newly synthesized strand is known as the template strand. It carries current information that allows the new strand to adhere to modifications or cell mutations.
