Solution

The correct option is B Ribose
Carbohydrates which cannot be hydrolyzed further into smaller components are called monosaccharides or simple sugar. Ribose is a sugar which cannot be hydrolyzed further as it is a smaller sugar with 5 carbon. Maltose, Sucrose, and Lactose are complex sugar which can be hydrolyzed into a smaller unit of sugars. Thus, the correct option is A.
