Explain what the name “carbohydrate” might indicate about the chemical composition
of sugars.

Answer:
1)
Carbohydrates are organic compounds made up of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. The number of carbon atoms within a particular carbohydrate varies, but the hydrogen and oxygen atoms always occur in the ratio of 2:1 (in the chemical makeup of a carbohydrate, hydrogen and oxygen bond as water; there may be more than one water molecule within a particular carbohydrate).
