What deoxynulceoside triphosphate would be limiting to the replication of DNA?

If 22% of the nucleotides of a DNA molecule are deoxyadenosine and during replication the relative amounts of available deoxynucleoside triphosphates are 22% dATP, 22% dCTP, 28% dGTP and 28% dTTP, which will be limiting to the replication?
