NEET Chemistry Biomolecules Questions Solved


Phspholipids are esters of glycerol with

(a) one carboxylic acid residue and two phosphate groups

(b) three phosphate groups

(c) three carboxylic acid residues

(d) two carboxylic acid residues and one phosphate groups

(d) Phospholipids are esters of glycerol with two carboxylic acid residue and one phosphate group. Hence, phospholipids may be regarded as derivative of glycerol in which two hydroxyl groups are esterified with fatty acid, while third is esterified with phosphoric acid.

(a) (+) Sucrose

(b) (+) Lactose

(c) (+) Maltose

(d) (-) Fructose

Concept Videos :-

#5 | Structure of Fructose & Sucrose
#6 | Disaccharides & Polysaccharides

Concept Questions :-

Polysaccharides (starch, cellulose, glycogen) importance

(a) Reducing sugars that exist in hemiacetal and hemiketal forms, mutarotation in aqueous solution. During mutarotation, the ring open upto give the open chain form which then reclose either in the inverted position or in the original position giving an equlibrium mixture of two anomers with a small amount of open chain form. Thus, all reducing monosaccharides and disaccharides undergo mutarotation in aqueous solution. Among the given carbohydrates, only sucrose is a non-reducing sugar as in it the hemiacetal and hemiketal groups of glucose and fructose are linked together through O-atom and thus, not free. Due to the absence of free hemiacetal or hemiketal group, sucrose does not exhibit mutation.
