Question

Lipids are insoluble in water because lipids molecules are:
  1. Hydrophilic
  2. Hydrophobic
  3. Neutral
  4. Zwitter ions


Solution

The correct option is B Hydrophobic
Lipids are insoluble in water but soluble in nonpolar solvents such as benzene and chloroform and hence are hydrophobic in nature.
Water attracting molecules are called hydrophilic.
Amino acids carry simultaneously positive and negative charges. Such substances are called zwitter ions.
