Hi..
Following will be helpful
Features of the DNA Double Helix

Two DNA strands form a helical spiral, winding around a helix axis in a right-handed spiral
The two polynucleotide chains run in opposite directions
The sugar-phosphate backbones of the two DNA strands wind around the helix axis like the railing of a sprial staircase
The bases of the individual nucleotides are on the inside of the helix, stacked on top of each other like the steps of a spiral staircase.
