  • Acetal is a synthetic polymer that can be homopolymerized or copolymerized.

The explanation for incorrect options.

(A) - Aldehydes

Aldehydes are members of a class of organic chemical compounds represented by the general structural formula R-CHO. R may be hydrogen or hydrocarbon radical-substituted or unsubstituted.

CH3CHO

(B) - Ketones.

In ketones, the carbonyl group has 2 hydrocarbon groups attached to it.

These can be either the ones containing benzene rings or alkyl groups.

Ketones do not have a hydrogen atom attached to the carbonyl group.

Example- CH3COCH3

(D) - Hydro Aldehydes

Hydroxy aldehydes are common compounds, with the class of carbohydrates being included in this type of compound.

Hence,the correct option is (C) i.e.,acetals are diethers.
