DNA: 5'-ACCTGGAT-3' RNA: 5'-AUCCAGGU-3' (A pairs with U; T pairs with A; G pairs with C & C pairs with G)

Generally, the DNA strand sequence of mapped genes refers to the sense sequence. Thus, the template strand for making the RNA transcript would be the opposite strand (antisense), such that the RNA transcript is the same as the DNA strand with simply T residues replaced by U.

@alistairgarratt : You have a good point. However as the question did not specifically mention if it was a template or coding strand (nor was any indication given of its directionality), I am assuming it to be the template strand with the directionality as given.
