A disaccharide is __________.
a. composed of two amino acid monomers linked by peptide (amide) bond
b. composed of two monosaccharides joined through a glycosidic bond
c. consisting of repeating structural units created through a process of polymerization
d. composed of three or more monosaccharides joined through a glycosidic bond

Expert Answer

A Disaccharide is formed by combining two monosaccharide units together through a glyosidic bond. As disaccharide is double of a monosaccharide.

When more than 3 monosaccharides are linked to each other by glyosidic bond, the resultant molecule is called as oligosaccharide.

And, the molecules containing amino group and car...
