Ascientist has discovered a new molecular compound that is a long chain of 26 carbons bonded together, with a methyl group on one end and an acid group on the other end of the molecule. the compound does not contain any nitrogen or sulfur atoms. based on this information, the compound is a(an)
The answer to your question is: Carboxylic acid.
Carboxylic acid: Carboxylic acids are organic acids that have the carboxylic group.
Carboxylic group is a carbon attach with a double bond to oxygen (C = 0), with a single bond to a hydroxyl group (C - OH) and with a single bond to a chain of carbons.
The general structure is shown below.
The correct answer will be option-C.
Deoxyribose nucleic acid or DNA is the genetic material of the organisms.
The DNA exists in double-helical form whee each strand is composed of nucleotides. Each nucleotide is composed of a five-carbon sugar, four types of nitrogenous bases: adenine, guanine, cytosine and thymine and a phosphate group. They lack uracil which is a component of the Ribonucleic acid strands.
Thus, Option-C is the correct answer.
So your answer would be uracil
Hope this helps ;)
