Quick question on state-of-the-art RNA results:

I've been told that the following statement is not correct; i.e. the
following has never been done.  What is the strongest statement that can
be made which stresses the fact that RNA can do a lot of things on its
own?  Thanks

"It has been demonstrated that RNA strands with a chain length around
100 nucleotides will arise spontaneously in a suitable environment,
reproduce themselves, and undergo adaptation by evolution."
