Question

In each carbohydrate molecule, the hydrogen and oxygen molecule is present in the ratio of 
  1. 4:5
  2. 1:2
  3. 2:1
  4. 3:2


Solution

The correct option is C 2:1
2:1
Since two hydrogens and an oxygen yield one water molecule, this proportion is called hydrate of carbon, from which the term carbohydrate is derived. Our body breaks down carbohydrates into glucose, which fuels the synthesis of adenosine triphosphate, or ATP, the body’s energy currency.
