Select all that apply. which of the following are not properties of nucleic acids? smallest of the four main biological macromolecules responsible for storing and carrying genetic codes building blocks of carbohydrates made up of dna and rna


The smallest selection of the four major biological micro-molecules and carbohydrate building blocks is the correct answer.


Nucleic acids are the biomolecules formed by the polymerization of nucleotides. Two nucleic acids are deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and RNA (ribonucleic acid).

These nucleic acids are the building blocks of living organisms as they perform many cellular processes such as storing and transporting genetic information, guiding cell activity and regulating genes.

DNA is the longest and most abundant macromolecule found in living things and aids in the biosynthesis of proteins, which contain a single strand of DNA codes for thousands of different proteins but not carbohydrates because they are polymers of monosaccharides (C, H, O ).

So the correct answer is the smallest of the four major biological micro-molecules and building blocks of carbohydrates.

ll Carbohydrates (usually in a 1: 2: 1 ratio) carbon, hydrogen and oxygen have all three elements. Monosaccharides contain only sugar – the simplest form of carbohydrates. These are the primary sources of energy for living cells. Examples of monosaccharides are glucose and fructose


Carbohydrates are essential macromolecules classified into three subtypes

the ratio of carbon to hydrogen to oxygen is 1: 2: 1 in carbohydrate molecules
