Solution

An organic compound is defined as any compound whose molecules contain carbon and hydrogen ( also known as ” hydrocarbons” ) or a compound that is the derivative of it.
Organic molecules don't just contain carbon. They contain hydrocarbons or carbon bonded to hydrogen. But in carbondioxide, it is not present, so it is not an organic compound.
